Elneny provides assist as Arsenal beat Vorskla Poltava

Played in freezing -12 degree temperatures, in front of the vast and mostly empty Olympic Stadium, it was Emery's men adapted to the conditions quickest and took the lead after just 10 minutes through Emil Smith-Rowe's third goal this season.

"They need confidence playing matches, not only in training but also to take minutes in games like today".

UEFA moved the Europa League game from Poltava to the capital on Tuesday after the Ukrainian parliament voted to introduce martial law in parts of the country, not including either city.

Unai Emery sent a makeshift team to participate in the Europa League match against Vorskla last night as UEFA shifted the game to Kiev at a short notice.

The second half was far less eventful but allowed Arsenal to blood in three debutants, Zech Medley, Charlie Gilmour and Bukayo Saka, and the latter in particular impressed during his cameo, coming close to scoring and also made another fine chance for Willock.

Mkhitaryan joined Emery for the press conference and the former Shakhtar Donestk winger believes it will be Vorskla who are hit more by the change of venue tonight.

The points, and first place in the group, were sealed when Willock tucked home his first senior goal after latching onto Mohamed Elneny's pass.

Arsenal heads to Ukraine to take on Vorskla in the Europa League on Thursday, in a match that has been moved due to security concerns but ultimately will go on.

So, if you want to watch all the action from Arsenal's Europa League match today then here's how to tune in online.

Kiev's Olimpiyskiy Stadium hosted the 2018 Champions League final in May, as well as the Euro 2012 final.

Smith Rowe had the ball in the net for a second time, only for the goal to be disallowed for a dubious offside decision, but victory for the Gunners saw them extend their unbeaten run to 18 matches in all competitions. French striker Olivier Giroud scored a brace in the first-half to hand his side a two-goal advantage before Calum Hudson-Odoi and Alvaro Morata inflicted more punishment on the Greek club.

"The players have been working with us in all sessions and also in pre-season".
