UEFA Europa League wrap 28 September 2017

The Gunners managed to play out the rest of the game with a few scares to record their second Europa League victory - their first appearance in the competition since season 1999/200.

Olivier Giroud scored his 100th Arsenal goal from the penalty spot as the Gunners defeated BATE Borisov 4-2.

Rob Holding turned home Per Mertesacker's header from a corner to make it 3-0 after just 25 minutes, though Borisov quickly pulled one back through Mirko Ivanic's superb headed effort.

Victory for Arsene Wenger's side leaves them on six points after their two opening group stage fixtures and on course to qualify for the knockout stages.

The opener came just two minutes later after a one-two between Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere provided the space for a cross which Walcott simply couldn't miss.

The forgotten man then lofted a cross centrally to Walcott and after his initial header was palmed out by Denis Scherbitski, the former England global was on hand to stab the rebound home.

Arsenal opened the scoring inside ten minutes. The 28-year-old has been struggling with a knee injury in recent weeks. The Frenchman has still shown his importance with crucial goals and a good performance against BATE could earn him a bigger role.

Scherbitiski made amends on one particular occasion to tip away another Walcott effort away at full-stretch to temporarily deny his hat-trick.

Dragun was booked for something we aren't quite sure of, and Giroud stroked home the penalty for his 100th Arsenal goal.

Even then, owing partly to their inexperience and Wilshere's advanced role when he could have offered direction from central midfield, Arsenal's lack of shape gave their hosts further opportunities.

The second came when an absolutely awful attempted clearance from Scherbitski rolled straight into the feet of Walcott, who quickly controlled the ball before side-footing a strike into the bottom left-hand corner of the net.
