Arsenal 4-1 Molde: Arteta tuning up Gunners system


Arsenal did well to come back from 1-0 down to win against Molde in the Europa League earlier tonight.

Ellingsen scored the opening goal of the game for the  away side on the 22nd minute.

However, two own goals either side of half time left the visitors trailing. Haugen scored the first own goal of the game on the 45th minute and Sinyan gave Arsenal the lead with his own goal on the 62nd minute.

Nicolas Pepe made it 3-1 to Arsenal on the 69th minute and Joe Willock wrapped up the scoring for the Premier League side two minutes from full time.

Mikel Arteta will be thoroughly impressed with his team’s performance tonight and Arsenal have now managed to win all three group games in the Europa League so far.

The Londoners will be hoping to go all the way in the competition. They certainly have the depth and quality in their side to do well in Europe this season and it will be interesting to see if Arsenal can build on their impressive start to the campaign and put together a winning run now.

Despite resting some of their key players the Gunners have done well in the European competition so far and the fans will certainly be optimistic about their chances of winning the tournament.

Molde will be disappointed with their performance after taking the lead. Two own goals are simply unacceptable against a team of Arsenal’s calibre and the away side paid the price for their irresponsible defending.
