Vorskla 0-3 Arsenal: Emile Smith-Rowe proves Arsenal’s future is bright

Arsenal have kept their unbeaten Europa League run intact, coming away with a 3-0 win over Ukrainian side Vorskla Poltava.

The north Londoners beat Bournemouth in the top-flight last weekend and face Tottenham in a huge derby clash on Sunday.

However, UEFA said that its emergency panel met on Tuesday and made a decision to move the match to Kiev's Olympic stadium.

Unai Emery hailed Emile Smith Rowe as an example for Arsenal's young players to follow after the 18-year-old scored in a Europa League win against Vorskla.

Aaron Ramsey put Arsenal in full control and heading for the win which would ensure they topped the group ahead of Sporting Lisbon when he spun on the ball in the area and was brought down by Ardin Dallku, before dispatching the resulting penalty impressively (27).

ARSENAL fans aren't too anxious about the impending departure of Aaron Ramsey - as they've got two ready made replacements waiting in the wings.

Smith Rowe opened the scoring in the tenth minute as he dispatched his strike into an empty net following great work from academy graduate Eddie Nketiah.

It's understood some of a small group of Arsenal support staff were also already in Poltava before Uefa's decision, while the Gunners' plane carrying them to Kiev had technical difficulties which meant their pre-match press conference was delayed by 90 minutes. The most important change is that it affects the supporters.

The victory saw Arsenal claim first place in the group with a game to spare.

Coverage of this evening's Champions League match between Arsenal and Vorskla Poltava will be shown live on BT Sport 2 (Sky 414, Sky HD 868, BT TV 409, Virgin Media 532), with coverage starting at 5.30pm and kick-off at 5.55pm.
