"We want to show Patrick that we are still a good team. We have some new talent now." So said Kolo Toure before last night's reunion with the former Arsenal captain.
Toure got his wish on a glorious night for the Gunners. Cesc Fabregas encapsulated the "new talent" he had referred to, stealing the show with a goal, an assist and a performance which left Vieira and Juventus in the shade.
"I think Fabregas is a great, great player," enthused Toure after Arsenal's 2-0 first-leg victory. "He can pass the ball and he can defend.
"When he was at Arsenal, Patrick helped him a lot. Now Cesc has played against him and he did well.
"He's only 18, he's done fantastically and I hope that he will keep going."
