After the disappointing draw in the North London Derby and the injuries we suffered in that game, we really needed a positive result today. Our European campaign got off to a bad start against Dortmund, and with a game against Chelsea coming up, a good result today would have helped us on multiple fronts. As such, the classy 4-1 victory was a joy to watch, especially Welbeck’s spectacular hat trick.
Arsenal fans were understandably very happy with the result, and shared their emotions on Twitter. Most tweets were complementary of Welbeck:
Welbeck > Balotelli Any day of the week.

Some fans instead chose to make fun of the fact that the last player to score a hat trick for us in the Champions League was the great Lord Bendtner:
Wait, Bendtner was the last Arsenal player to score a hat-trick in the CL? lolwut

While others chose to mock the comparisons between Welbeck and Thierry Henry:
Wtf is with all this Welbeck hype … The new Henry? Haha Arsenal fans are deluded. LVG sold him because he wasn't prolific
