A quite impressive haul from the Gunners on international duty. Sanogo, Alexis and Welbeck with two goals a piece and Chamberlain with one. Assuming Welbeck’s issue was just cramp, doesn’t look as though we’ve picked up any injuries either. Podolski, Cazorla, Chambers and Szczesny didn’t play during the week as they could have either.
