An early Theo Walcott goal proved to be the difference in Arsenal's first-leg victory of their UEFA Champions League Qualifier against Udinese at The Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

The Gunners will be well aware though that the scoreline represents the slenderest of leads in a tie that has so far been fast-paced, lively, and most importantly, still up for grabs.

The Italians, under the leadership of Antonio Di Natale, looked threatening in short bursts in the first-half. But by the second, they seemed to have completely come to grips with Arsene Wenger's tactics, as they continuously broke into the opponents half in search of that crucial yet ultimately elusive away goal.

Arsenal's back-line, despite having to be shuffled a couple of times, stood resolutely and rose to the task, ensuring Arsenal held onto their narrow lead. 

There are usually certain observations that can draw from games after the full 90 minutes are up and the "dust has settled." This match is no different.

So, without any further delay, here is a list of 5 things we learnt from Arsenal's first-leg qualifier vs Udinese.

Enjoy.
