The way Arsenal kicked off the season with two uninspiring 0-0 draws against Sunderland and Stoke City; they've perhaps done well to go six league games before losing.

It was only by the time Cristiano Ronaldo managed to score his second goal for the night, to make it 2-0 for Real Madrid that I finally managed a sigh of relief. ‘This wasn't going to end up like those matches' – I thought, recalling our slip-ups against Valencia and Getafe. There would be no freakish, frantic comeback for the opponent and no moments of panic for our boys – just absolute control of the match and further questions if we can manage a 3rd , 4th, 5th goal and so on.
