Podolski, Ramsey and Bellerin react on Twitter after Arsenal's 4-1 win

Aaron Ramsey Claps

Arsenal's players reacted on Twitter with delight after their 4-1 crushing of Galatasaray.

Arsenal hammered Galatasary 4-1 in their backyard, taking out their frustrations at a disappointing weekend result against Stoke.

Arsene Wenger's side were in cruise control from the moment Lukas Podolski thunderously opened the scoring in the third minute, in his first start in the Champions League this season.

The German added to his opener with a late strike, with Aaron Ramsey scoring two in between, the second of which was an exquisite volley from outside the box.

Only Wesley Sneijder's late free-kick stopped the Gunners keeping a clean sheet, and this was despite Galatasaray having an incredible 32 shots at goal.

Of these only seven landed on target, with Arsenal managing six, and were also denied by the woodwork.

It was not quite enough for Arsenal to win the group despite Dortmund only drawing with Anderlecht.

Wenger said afterwards: "What hurt Galatasaray in both games was our pace and power."

In the next round, Arsenal could draw one of Porto or Monaco in addition to the likes of Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid or Real Madrid, and will have to hope for better luck than in previous years.

Here's a look at how the players reacted to the win afterwards:

Teenager Alex Iwobi was simply happy to be on the bench:
