  • GOOAALLL! SMITH-ROWE PUTS THE VISITORS AHEAD!  It was all Nketiah for the opener after interchanging well with Ramsey, and despite tough pressure from the Vorskla defence, the loose ball falls into the path of Smith-Rowe who strikes the ball into the net with Shust in no-man’s land! 1-0 to the Arsenal!

  • GOOOAALLL! ARSENAL ARE RUNNING RAMPANT IN KIEV! Willock finishes off the quickest of moves after Rebenok gives the ball away in midfield to Elneny, and the Egypt midfielder does well to find the youngster who takes on the Vorskla defence before side-footing a neat finish past a diving Shust for his first ever Arsenal goal! 3-0 to Emery’s youngsters, and this is surely game over for the Ukrainians!
