Marouane Chamakh opened his account for Arsenal converting a spot kick against Austrian third division side SC Neusiedl. The other goal scorers were Theo Walcott, Jay Emmanuel Thomas, and Carlos Vela.
Thomas, Jack Wilshere, and Samir Nasri combined well. The defense looked a bit shaky at times. Manuel Almunia came on in the first half and in the second half Vito Mannone was brought on and saved a penalty.
