Arsenal 4-2 Vorskla: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stars with brace

Arsenal got their Europa League campaign off to a solid start against lowly opposition with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil helping themselves to goals.

The Gunners were took much of a match for Vorskla Poltava, who finished third in the Ukranian’s top division last season, but needed over half an hour before going into the lead.

Aubameyang finished off a well-worked move to liven up an Emirates Stadium laden with empty seats. Welbeck doubled the lead early in the second half before the Gabon grabbed a second and Ozil finished it off.
