FK Qarabag 0 - Arsenal 3

Arsenal top group after away victory
FK Qarabag 0 - Arsenal 3: Arsenal went top of their Europa league table after an away victory against opposition that was much vaunted, but delivered little. Basically, Arsenal fielded their 2nd XI, however, despite the commentators enthusiastically spouting that Qarabag don't concede many goals, Sokratis ignored that and put the Gunners ahead in the 4th minute. Now, it would be fair to say that Arsenal's defence still looks a little shaky, however, new signing Bernd Leno was more than up to the task, in stopping a number of spirited efforts.  Arsenal's lead was doubled in the 53rd minute when 18 year old Smith-Rowe slotted home for his first Arsenal goal, and, apparently the youngest Arsenal player to score his first since a certain Oxlade-Chamberlain did the same. Smith-Rowe better keep up his fine form, what with his comparison to the Ox, and some other comparisons to Kevin De Bruyne by certain sections of the media. So, it that was…

Arsenal 4 - Vorskla 2

What should have been an easy victory for the Gunners, turned out to be a match in which the scoreline had nothing to do with the game.
For the first half, the vastly changed Gunners were VERY bland. Against a team with this amount of achievement, this was very poor. As usual, though, the half time pep talk from Emery sparked Arsenal into life and they were much the superior team in the second half, with 2 goals from Aubameyang, one from Welbeck, and one from Ozil, giving the Gunners a 4-0 lead.
It seems, though, that Arsenal appear incapable of keeping a clean sheet, and, just before the end, the visiting team pulled two back as Arsenal's defence again went to sleep. The senior Lichsteiner, playing his first gaime, was mostly to blame. However, as long as Arsenal keep scoring so many, this run of 4 wins in a row, may well continue.
