Arsenal cruise to victory against Dundalk

1 min read

Arsenal’s second-string side comfortably ran out 3-0 victors over Irish outfit Dundalk in the Europa League tie at the Emirates.

Playing just Granit Xhaka from the starting eleven who lost to Leicester on Sunday, the Gunners struggled to break the deadlock until Eddie Nketiah stabbed home after Gary Rogers missed his punch from a corner.

Just over two minutes later the lead was doubled when with the Dundalk defenders in panic mode, the ball fell for Joseph Willock on the left hand side of the box and he took the ball down deftly before lifting the ball into the roof of the net.

Moments into the second half came the third, a wonderful goal from Nicolas Pepe, rolling the ball away from a defender on the edge of the box before clipping a ball into the top-right corner.

The result leaves Arsenal with two wins from their opening two Europa Cup games, after their 2-1 win at Rapid Vienna last week.
