Olivier Giroud gave Arsene Wenger’s men the lead on the stroke of half-time with a fine finish, before Aaron Ramsey made the points secure when he fired home in the 81st minute after some intricate build-up play from the north London side.
Substitute Mathieu Flamini added gloss to the scoreline when he tapped in from close range following Santi Cazorla’s low pass across goal.
