There were numerous chances for the home team but it was a set piece which led to the opening goal. Mesut Ozil swung the ball in for Shkodran Mustafi to plant a wonderful header into the far top corner.
Alexandre Lacazette broke clear just a few minutes later and cut it back for Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean took a touch before lofting the ball into the roof of the net.
The Gunners just needed to see the game out after that and they certainly did with a commanding second-half.
