Arsenal followed up their 4-1 victory against Galatasaray in the Champions League with a win by the same score-line against Newcastle United this weekend.
The Gunners have had a hit-and-miss campaign to date but it looks like they are getting back into their rhythm at exactly the right time, as braces from Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud made relatively easy work of Alan Pardew's men.
Newcastle's consolation goal came from Ayoze Perez but by then the damage had been done, with Arsenal impressing in a number of key areas.
One player who shone particularly brightly was Hector Bellerin, whose performance suggested he must now feature far more regularly for Arsenal.
The Spaniard set up one goal, went on five dribbles and had a passing accuracy of 78 per cent. He also won an impressive eight duels, three tackles and two interceptions.

The Arsenal right-back's age means he still has a lot to learn, but his innate talent and considerable confidence are undeniable and Arsene Wenger cannot ignore him any longer.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans thought of Bellerin's performance and below you can read a selection of what we found:
Been very critical of Bellerin but he gave a great performance today. Was his best yet. Better going forward than defending. #AFC— Arsenalista (@Arsenalista) December 13, 2014

Bellerin was my man of the match. Brilliant performance from him today— T' Trilly Trill™ (@TeeTrillyTrill) December 13, 2014
Bellerin was superb today, deserves more recognition than he gets imo. Defensively, solid and attacking-wise provided a real threat. #afc— Mosope Ominiyi (@Football365Mo) December 13, 2014
Bellerin was outstanding today which makes me ask why we haven't seen more of him?— Highbury Ghost (@arsenalaction) December 13, 2014
