Arsenal fans were treated to a virtuoso display from striker Lucas Perez in the club’s 4-1 win over FC Basel on Tuesday night.

The Spaniard bagged a hat-trick to help ensure the Gunners’ progression to the knockout stages of the Champions League as group winners.

Alex Iwobi notched the fourth, but it was the 28-year-old’s treble that grabbed all the headlines.

Perez has endured a difficult start to life in North London, having started only four times before the trip to Switzerland.

However, he seized the opportunity to impress with both hands and will now be hoping to force his way into manager Arsene Wenger’s plans on a more permanent basis.

Arsenal’s joy was compounded by Paris Saint-Germain’s failure to beat Ludogorets Razgrad in the group’s other match, meaning that the Gunners overtook their French rivals to top the group.

Fans took to Twitter to express their delight at the results and in particular Perez’s performance; here are some of the best tweets:
