First of all , the association of Arsenal fans are thankful for whoever tied Theo Walcott’s destiny last season for releasing it now. Theo Walcott scored twice as Arsenal put in a dominant home display against Basel.  Alexis Sánchez should have had a third on the half hour but the keeper did well to get an arm to his close range shot but it was a great performance at the Emirate, where Arsenal have often struggled in recent times.

Wenger said it’s clear the team is no longer nervous playing at home.

The confidence comes from the last results. I think we were a bit edgy at home for a few games and now it looks like we are playing with full power and pace,” Wenger said. “I think it was a game where again the first half was top quality. The pace, the quality of our movement, the technical quality. And we created many dangerous situations. I would like to congratulate my team for the quality that they produced tonight. But I have a regret which is that we didn’t take enough chances that we created. But it’s a good basis to have a taste for more.” Arsenal are tied atop Group A with Paris Saint-Germain, having drawn 1-1 away at the French side in their opening game. And there’s a growing belief that Wenger finally has a side that could challenge in Europe’s top competition, after being eliminated in the last 16 for six years in a row.
