Arsenal had to dig deep on Tuesday night as they beat Ludogrets by the slimmest of margins.
Despite being in exciting form, the Gunners are notoriously unpredictable and they showed just how much as they were down 2-0 just fifteen minutes onto the half.
The North London side initially looked bereft of ideas against a side they had thrashed 6-0 two weeks ago.
Xhaka reduced the deficit in the first half making an instant impact on his return to the team.
Arsene Wenger’s side went level four minutes from half-time as Giroud, who scored twice during the weekend scored again. Both teams then missed chances to score and Xhaka should have put Arsenal ahead in the 73rd minute.
In the end, it took some magic from Ozil to hand Arsenal the win as he seized on El Neny’s through ball to chip the keeper and beat two defenders.
