Playing at home, against a regular mid-level opponent from Ukraine, coach Unai Emery decided to give a series of key players some rest.

A series of personnel changes made Arsenal’s entry into the game not really smooth.

However, with constant pressure, Arsenal made the away team reveal their mistakes and scored the opening goal in the first good opportunity in the 32nd minute. After catching a bad pass from a Vorskla Poltava player, Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Taking off their mentality, Arsenal plays without looking back.

In the second half, Vorskla Poltava’s goal continued to be on red alert.

Aubameyang scored 9 goals and assisted 3 goals in Arsenal’s 10 matches at home.

The three-goal gap is enough for coach Unai to have the right to calculate.

With nothing left to lose, Vorskla Poltava – a team that has not had any victory in the history of participating in the Europa League (2 draws and 5 losses) – rose up.

Arsenal’s matches under Unai’s reign are having many positive innovations.

However, the three points still did not leave the Emirates Stadium, and coach Unai had the 32nd victory of his career in the Europa League – a record in this arena.
