A brace apiece from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette have put Arsenal in full control ahead of next week's second leg in Moscow.

The Gunners had ample chances to extend their lead but were forced to settle with four goals.

But Wenger was happy with the job his players did this evening.

Wenger said: ”I think we have done enough of a job tonight, there was a good pace in the first half, the two teams gave everything which is why it was such a spectacular first half.

"Second half the aim was not to concede, we did that and also had loads of opportunities that we didn't take."

When asked if he was disappointed not to score more goals in the second half, Wenger said: “You know how football is, you want to make the difference as big as possible, but at 1-1 we would have taken 4-1.

"We have to be realistic, he have to do the job over there, go and try to win the game, that's the best way."
