Grab an early lead, keep your attacking stars in form, and coast into the Premier League weekend.

Arsene Wenger could’ve hardly drawn it up better for Arsenal in a 6-0 win over visiting Ludogorets Razgrad in UEFA Champions League action on Wednesday.

Mesut Ozil registered a hat trick, and Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also scored.

The Gunners will have to absolutely implode to miss the knockout rounds, as both Arsenal and PSG sit six points ahead of Ludogorets and Basel.

Sanchez got Arsenal started with style, casually chipping the keeper from in-tight to make it 1-0 in the 12th minute.

Theo Walcott’s red-hot form continues, as he made it 2-0 before halftime, and Oxlade-Chamberlain worked his way into prime shooting position to make it 3-0 just after the break.

And then Ozil, my goodness. He scored in the 56th, 83rd, and 87th minutes, and it very, very hard to describe his first goal -- or sum up his day -- any better than Fox Soccer’s Twitter account.
