Olivier Giroud scored his 100th goal as we made it two wins from two in the Europa League with a 4-2 victory over BATE Borisov on Thursday night.
Theo Walcott struck twice in the opening 22 minutes, before Rob Holding turned home his first goal in Arsenal colours shortly after.
Mirko Ivanic pulled one back, but Olivier restored our three-goal cushion by scoring his landmark goal just four minutes into the second half, converting a penalty after Shkodran Mustafi was fouled.
