Arsenal cruised into the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Standard Liege after goals from Samir Nasri and Denilson.
Needing a point against the Belgians to win Group H with a match to spare, Nasri opened the scoring at the Emirates Stadium while team-mate Andrey Arshavin was off the pitch getting treatment to his cut head.
Denilson, returning after two months out with a back problem and making his 100th appearance for the club, smashed in a curling effort that deceived goalkeeper Sinan Bolat and ensured Arsene Wenger reached the last 16 of the competition for the 10th season in a row.
The visitors had Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez dismissed for clashing with Cesc Fabregas at the death.
