Here are five interesting stats from the match...
1) Despite a so-called below-par performance, Mesut Ozil's pass completion accuracy of 92 per cent was equal to Aaron Ramsey and higher than any other Arsenal midfielder or forward. Oh and he provided another assist too.
2) Aaron Ramsey touched the ball 140 times, by contrast Marseille's only central midfielder to last 90 minutes Jaques-Alaixys Romao just 55 times.
3) Another Ozil one, the German created five goalscoring opportunities - the same as the whole Marseille side.
4) While Mathieu Flamini made one successful tackle, Aaron Ramsey made nine!
5) After coming on in the 57th minute, Florent Thauvin had as many shots on goal (3) as the rest of his whole team put together.
