Sanchez stunner and three from Ozil as Arsenal hit Ludogorets for six
The Bulgarian side were torn apart by some tremendous Arsenal moves tonight.

ALEXIS SANCHEZ’ EFFORTLESS looking opener set the tone for Arsenal’s 6 –  0 cruise at home to Ludogorets tonight.

Mesut Ozil claimed a hat-trick on the night with Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completing the rout.

It took the Gunners just 12 minutes to break the deadlock against their Bulgarian opponents but it came in the form of this delicious Sanchez finish.

Walcott’s goal saw the Gunners take a 2 – 0 lead into the break with Oxlade-Chamberlain making it three a minute after the restart.

That left it down to Ozil to close the show, and his treble ensured Arsenal would do so in style, starting with this killer first touch to turn Santi Cazorla’s through-ball into Arsenal’s fourth.
