Van Persie leads Gunners to victory

Published Add your comment

Robin van Persie led the rout as Arsenal resumed normal service at the Emirates Stadium with a thumping 4-0 Champions League victory over Porto.

Holland international van Persie struck his first goals in European competition for a year, pouncing either side of the interval and displaying strength during a well-taken second.

Emmanuel Adebayor set up the opener for his strike partner and also helped himself to a brace, the second from the spot after Nicklas Bendtner had been hacked down by Freddy Guarin.
