SPORTING 0-1 ARSENAL: Five things we learned as the Gunners make it 11 wins in a row with victory over Sporting. Danny Welbeck scored the sbobet 789
only goal of the game as he capitalised on a mistake and finished well in the 78th minute. Welbeck had a goal disallowed earlier in the second half when he sbobet 789
was adjudged to have fouled his marker. Sokratis was fortunate to stay on the pitch in the first half after the referee failed to spot his foul on Sporting striker Fredy Montero. Arsenal sit top of their group on nine points and one more win will seal their place in the knockout stages. With injuries to Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac, Arsenal boss Unai Emery took a gamble and opted to select Granit Xhaka at left-back. And the Arsenal manager will be pleased with how the Swiss midfielder performed. Xhaka's lack of pace was a clear area to exploit but Sporting failed to take sbobet 789
advantage. The 26-year-old was assured on the ball apart from one moment when a corner from him went straight out of play for a throw-in on the other side. Stephan Lichtsteiner was brought to the Emirates to provide experience and cover for Hector Bellerin. It was hoped he might give Bellerin a challenge for his place but the Swiss defender has been shaky and unconvincing at times. Sporting appeared to target him early on but didn't make the most of their chances. Lichtsteiner did get better as the game went on but his final ball was disappointing.
