[Player Ratings] Bate Borisov 2-4 Arsenal - Walcott And Wilshere Shine

The Gunners raced into a three-goal first half lead, courtesy of Walcott's goals and a Rob Holding tap-in.

Arsenal's best chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League is undoubtedly by winning the Europa League at the end of the campaign.

Named in a experimental starting XI by Arsene Wenger in Belarus tonight, the teenager - who impressed many with his pre-season performances this summer - took up a place as the right-wing back once again.

Trump Touts 'Good Job' in Puerto Rico as Chicago Residents Take Action
In a series of tweets Monday night, Trump said the US territory's old electrical grid was "devastated". Ten people have died and others do not have food, water or fuel.

"Obviously, I am an attacking player, so when you are an attacking player, you need to create goals and get goals - and that's the main thing for me". We all know that Wilshere has awful luck with injuries, and that he is often his worst enemy in terms of behaving himself off the pitch. "Good first touch and movement", Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said of Lacazette. The keeper received the ball and gave it straight to Theo Walcott when he was trying to play it out from the back. A brilliant chip from Wilshere allowed Walcott the opportunity to head in from close range. BATE keeper Scherbitski's awkward pass found it's way to Walcott, who finished easily. Several first team players were not on the plane for the trip, including Mesut Ozil, who apparently doesn't need to test his fitness before Brighton on Sunday. A few minutes after the interval, the Frenchman was given a gift of his own when the referee noticed what must have been the slightest tug on Shkodran Mustafi's shirt by Stanislav Dragun and awarded a penalty as soft as a duck-feather eiderdown. The Belarusian side have lost just one of their last 12 home games in all European competition. 3 defensive mistakes led to a shot by Mirko Ivanic which David Ospina was equal to but Mikhail Gordeichuk smashed in the rebound to give the hosts a glimmer of hope, however, Arsenal stood firm and saw the rest of the game out comfortably.

A first half penalty from Iraqi global Brwa Nouri handed Ostersund a gutsy 1-0 home win over Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin as they continued a fairytale first campaign in Europe two years after being promoted to the Swedish top flight. The sides went into the break with Arsenal in relative comfort at 3-1. THey should have had a man sent off and Wilshere should have had a goal but for an incorrect offside call but it still looked good at halftime.

Atalanta leads Group E with four points following a 1-1 draw at Lyon, and Everton remains on the bottom with one point.
