Ворскла – Арсенал відео голів та огляд скандального матчу Ліги Європи Russian tensions forces UEFA to move Vorskla Poltava vs Arsenal to safer haven of Kiev

HENRIKH MKHITARYAN admits UEFA have handed Arsenal a big advantage by switching today's Europa League clash with Vorskla Poltava to neutral Kiev.

Arsenal are now on top of their Europa League group with 13 points, their next game in the competition will be against Qarabag on December 13.

Aaron Ramsey also converted a penalty as Unai Emery's side finished the match with six teenagers on the Olympic Stadium pitch.

Nketiah drew a save out of Bohdan Shust at the start of the second half, with Smith Rowe seeing a second of the night eventually ruled out for offside after he turned home Stephan Lichtsteiner's deflected cross.

Vorskla gave Arsenal two slight worries over their clean sheet late on, but Petr Cech saved at the feet of Igor Perduta before substitute Nicolas Careca fired wide in the final moments.

It was Smith Rowe's third goal of the season - which is a superb return for the midfielder - and fans online were quick to point out he's now scored the same number of goals as Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford combined.


Joe Willock became the 21st different goalscorer for Arsenal in the Europa League since the start of last season.

The political tensions, coupled with the inconvenience for both clubs, will linger longer than Thursday's match, especially as Arsenal have already qualified for the knockout stages, with a win in Kiev enough to secure top spot.
