Arsenal survived a second-half scare to record a 3-1 win over Partizan Belgrade and secure their qualification from Champions League Group H in second position.

Robin van Persie's first of the season put the Gunners ahead before Cleo's deflected strike drew the scores level just after the break.

Knowing only a win would secure them qualification, the Londoners stepped up their game and secured the win thanks to goals from substitute Theo Walcott and Samir Nasri before Bacary Sagna was dismissed late on for a clumsy challenge on Aleksandar Lazevski.
