Last night the Champions league the Gunner thrashed the Swedish side FC Basel by 4-1, and topped the group and on the other hand the reigning Ligue e 1 champions drew their match against Ludogorets in their home soil.


Now Arsenal finished their champions league group match by winning the match they earn the first spot in the group and they can avoid team like Barcelona and Atletcio Madrid in their top 16 clash.


Though they can face teams like Benfica, Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund or Real Madrid, Porto or Copenhagen or Juventus or Sevilla in their next knock out stages, but the former Scottish International thinks that they should not fear anybody.


Nicholas added:

"When Arsenal are a club with fluency and momentum, they are as good as anybody,"


"They've beaten Barcelona in the past and they can beat any of the top sides, but can they do it consistently. It's looking as if they are much tougher. They are much more up for the fight and it is all good news for Arsenal."


In their match the French Coach Wenger made six changes including the Spanish striker Perez made the first team in that match and he scored a hat trick in that match,


Last night the also Alex Iwobi made the first team and he utilized his opportunity fully and scored a goal for his side in that match, and they won the match by 4-1.


The former Arsenal player said that:

"Arsenal have got their swagger back and were in the groove,"


"He didn't score tonight but Alexis Sanchez, alongside Mesut Ozil, was absolutely fabulous to watch.

"The players that came in also did well. Lucas Perez got a hat-trick, Alex Iwobi scored, Kieran Gibbs basically got three assists and Rob Holding also played well at the back. So it's all good news and a happy December so far."

"The squad's so strong. You've got Walcott on the bench, you've got Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been getting the nod ahead of the likes of Iwobi, who also grabbed a goal. Now Wenger's got a fabulous headache.

"It's amazing what a competitive edge does to a group because you don't need to be the best of mates, but in training, you'll feel the spirit, you'll feel the togetherness and you'll feel the endeavour that you've got to be at the top of your game to impress the manager."
