Arsenal FC took command of UEFA Champions League Group F with a comfortable 2-0 home victory against SSC Napoli.
Both sides came into the game in terrific form, only for the Premier League leaders to stop the Italian team in their tracks with a breathtaking opening spell. Goals from Mesut Özil and Olivier Giroud in the first 15 minutes set the Gunners on course for a success that leaves them three points clear at the top of the section, with the visit of Borussia Dortmund to come on matchday three.
The first half was one of the best halves we've played for a long time. There is a long way to go but we have good spirits and we have belief.
Arsène Wenger, Arsenal manager
When you are 2-0 down against opponents like Arsenal it becomes very difficult. We knew it would be tough but we can still have a say in this group.
Rafael Benítez, Napoli coach
