Arsenal vs BATE Borisov Preview

Arsenal take on BATE Borisov in the Europa League tonight

Mertesacker is to retire at the season's end to become the club's academy manager, and he similarly recognises the importance of those younger players gaining first-team experience.

Arsenal face a tricky away tie against BATE Borisov in Belarus in the UEFA Europa League and their already tricky predicament has been toughened by the unavailability of several first-team players. The vision to square it to Walcott... he has a simple header.

Walcott then doubled the lead for the North Londoners in the 22nd minute, courtesy of a goalkeeping howler from the BATE 'keeper. However, Scherbitski did make a fabulous, fingertip save to deny Walcott his third - a fig leaf for a terrible display.

Three minutes later and Arsenal had hit the back of the net yet again.

The Englishman made a very lively start to his second European outing before wowing fans with one particular moment of skill. Josh Dasilva is a left wing-back or a left-centre back.

Three minutes before the break Walcott was denied his hat-trick with a fine fingertip save from Scherbitski.

Walcott made it 2-0 midway through the first half after an bad error by BATE goalkeeper Denis Scherbitski, who miscued a clearance straight to the England forward.

Giroud duly scored his 100th goal for Arsenal, joining a pantheon that includes Thierry Henry, Cliff Bastin and Robin van Persie.

"He is in good company, when you look at the number of goals he's scored". Mertesacker was out of position, Holding slipped and Ospina could only parry Ivanic's shot, allowing Mikhail Gordeichuk to score a second.

The Gunners travel to Belarus to take on BATE Borisov this evening, looking to make it two wins from their opening two Europa League group games.

"Throughout the game he was doing certain things and you can see it in some players".
