Robin van Persie ensured Arsenal´s impressive start to the new season continued with a 1-0 win against a stubborn Steaua Bucharest 1-0 to maintain their 100% Champions League record.

The Premier League leaders, who have now won nine games consecutively, had the majority of possession all night against Steaua, who had never lost to English opposition in Europe before.

After seeing Cesc Fabregas blaze an early chance over the bar from close range and then surviving a brief rally by the hosts, Van Persie struck with 15 minutes left.
