AARON RAMSEY GOT Arsenal back on track with a brilliant double in tonight’s 4-1 win at Galatasaray but there was still frustration for under-fire boss Arsene Wenger as the Gunners were unable to clinch top spot in Champions League Group D.

Somewhat inevitably given the downbeat tone of Arsenal’s campaign, Dortmund got the point they needed against the Belgians and Arsenal were forced to settle for second place despite a dominant display which saw Ramsey score twice in the first half, including a stunning long-range effort.

Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck were among several players rested by Wenger.

Yet even with all the changes, it quickly became apparent that the Gunners would have more than enough firepower to overwhelm Galatasaray as Podolski opened the scoring in the third minute at the Turk Telekom Arena.

Arsenal continued their blistering start to double their lead in the 11th minute. Podolski won possession in midfield and Oxlade-Chamberlain drove forward to slip a pass to Ramsey, who guided a low shot past Sinan Bolat into the bottom corner.

Arsenal were content to go through the motions before Sneijder’s 88th minute free-kick gave Galatasaray the slenderest of consolations.

That sparked Arsenal back into life and Podolski ran clear to slot home the fourth with virtually the last kick of the match.
