The pair have combined for 10 goals in the last six games, with Mooney responsible for five of those in his previous two outings alone.

The 28-year-old, who had been regularly employed out of his favoured attacking position, has come under criticism from fans in the past but denies this has contributed to his motivation.

"It's just one of those things. I don't think I'm proving anyone wrong. You just want to prove yourself right really and I knew I would once I played up front," he told the East London Guardian.

"Lisbie is a great foil. He's strong, good in the air and links the play great. I just play off him really and he's the one who gives me the freedom to play. In terms of that it's been really good.

"It's been exciting. Me and Kevin have formed a great partnership. He's got five or six goals and I've got five goals in the last few weeks."

his specializing in mediocrity will only stop when Wenger and his entire back room staff are cleared out. Dortmund are everything Arsenal should be; in fact they're everything Arsenal thought they were, until they met this supreme doppelg nger.

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.

he worst performance since Wenger took charge. A spineless, gutless cowardly performance. Wenger and the players should hand their weeks wages to the fans. Useless pathetic amateurs.
