His passing repeatedly stretched BATE, whose defeat was secured by two finishes from Walcott, another from Rob Holding and Giroud's penalty, which was his 100th goal for the club, and Wenger said: "He had an outstanding first half".

Arsenal leads Group H with six points, two ahead of Red Star Belgrade which won at Cologne 1-0.

Nelson performed brilliantly in the right wing-back position for the Gunners, contributing both defensively and in attack and displaying a repertoire of fancy footwork to boot.

The Gunners needed just nine minutes to open the scoring as Walcott tapped home at the second attempt after being set up by the impressive Jack Wilshere.

The Gunners doubles their lead as Theo Walcott grabbed his second of the night.

For a period Arsenal remained uncertain, but by half-time Walcott had been denied his hat-trick by a save from Scherbitski, and Holding had struck the post with another close-range effort, again exposing BATE's vulnerabilities.

Giroud duly scored his 100th goal for Arsenal, joining a pantheon that includes Thierry Henry, Cliff Bastin and Robin van Persie.

In the 49th minute, Arsenal were awarded a penalty when Shkodran Mustafi was hauled down in the box. No sooner had Holding shinned Per Mertesacker's flick-on into the net - the 22-year-old was to thump the ball against the BATE post before the break - than Borisov scored.

Alexei Rios swung in a delicious cross and Montenegrin global Mirko Ivanic planted a fine header into the roof of the net.
