Arsenal continued their unbeaten start in the Champions League group stage with a 3-1 win over Greek champions Olympiakos at Emirates Stadium.

Gervinho opened the scoring against the run of player on 42 minutes before Kostas Mitroglou hit back with a bullet header past Vito Mannone as half time was approaching.

Spanish star Santi Cazorla should have put the Gunners ahead after the interval when he sidefooted wide from close range following good work from the impressive Gervinho.

Olympiakos’ goalscorer Mitroglou then fizzed a speculative effort narrowly wide before Lukas Podolski restored his side’s lead.

The German capitalised on some persistent work from Gervinho before seeing his low shot creep under Megyeri.

Olivier Giroud missed two good chances to extend the two-goal advantage after he came on for Podolski, but fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey made sure of the win in injury time when he brilliantly chipped Megyeri with aplomb.
