Arsenal Still Top Group Spot, Chelsea Bounced Back in Europa League

Arsenal keeping their table topping seat in their Europa League group in tack following their comfortable 3-0 away win over Vorskla on Thursday.

Playing with many young players, Gunners remain dominant as they put on an aggressive approach straight from kick off which was immediately rewarded as they went 1-0 up after just 10 minutes through Emile Smith-Rowe’s effort.

Leading by a goal didn’t stop the visitor from pouring forward during that first 45 minutes as they kept on pushing hard and eventually doubling their advantage on 27 minutes through Aaron Ramsey’s spot kick.

Unai Emery’s men practically sealed the match when Joseph Willock netted home his team’s third just before half time break.

Nothing really changed in the second half as Gunners just strolling their way to hold down that comfortable 3-0 advantage until the final whistle was blown.

Meanwhile, Chelsea didn’t need a long time to get over their weekend defeat in Premier League as Maurizio Sarri’s men grabbed a 4-0 victory over PAOK this Thursday.

Keen on bouncing back from their first defeat this season against Tottenham Hotspur on the weekend, The Blues immediately took the attacking initiative as they took a 2-0 lead in the first 45 minutes.

Olivier Giroud found his scoring touch as the French international netted two goals, all in the first 45 minutes to give his side a comfortable advantage as they go into half time break.

In the second half, Chelsea kept on pouring forward and netted two more goals, courtesy of Callum Hudson-Odoi and substitute, Alvaro Morata.

Not really an important win for The Blues in terms of their Europa League status since they already secured top spot and a place in the knock out stage, but it’s essential result to regain their confidence after the weekend loss.
