What is really Arsenal's aim in this season's Champions League>>>>>>>>

Wenger initially said its time for the Gunners to clinch their fist on the title
but has he set the stage for that.<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Wenger made six changes to the side that cruised

past Stoke at the weekend.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Wenger was in anticipating that his team would show

their strength and cruise to a comfortable win and with one eye on Saturday's Premier League game

against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge however, he got a different thing entirely from what he expected.


The Gunners played one man for close to 50 minutes down after Giroud was dismissed for  second

bookable offence. Giroud cost Arsenal dearly and showed why Wenger was so keen to sign a top

class striker over the summer. It was a selection that showed a lack of respect to the competition and

Dinamo. One may claim that Wenger thought it would be a walkover  as he rested six of his first

team players but instead gifted a first Champions League win since 1999 to a team that played with

speed and imagination that Arsenal couldn't match. Walcott had been rested and started on the bench

along with Petr Cech, Nacho Monreal and Francis Coquelin while Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin

- supposedly both perfectly fit - watched on television from London.Wenger claimed before kick-off

that he was replacing them with players of equal quality in the likes of David Ospina, Mikel Arteta

and Kieran Gibbs.The introduction of Walcott lifted the morale of the London's side and he came and

scored to close the gab but it was not enough as they were exhausted and were unable to get the

equalizer.
