Gunners ease past Blues

Published Add your comment

Arsenal maintained their 100% home record this season with a 3-1 win over Birmingham.

Robin van Persie and Abou Diaby had fired the Gunners into a 2-0 lead inside 18 minutes, but Lee Bowyer capitalised on a mistake by young keeper Vito Mannone - preferred to fit-again Manuel Almunia - to pull a goal back before half-time.

After soaking up plenty of pressure from the battling Blues, Andrey Arshavin wrapped up victory late on.
