Emery: Smith Rowe an example to Arsenal's youngsters

Russian tensions forces UEFA to move Vorskla Poltava vs Arsenal to safer haven of Kiev

The Group E fixture was moved 185 miles east of Poltava to the capital's Olympic Stadium, with parts of Ukraine under martial law as political tensions with Russian Federation continue to rise.

The inconvenience - as well as a technical issue with their plane and the team bus breaking down just outside the stadium - did little to knock Arsenal off their stride as youngsters Emile Smith Rowe and Joe Willock scored either side of an Aaron Ramsey penalty to seal a 3-0 win in temperatures which dipped to minus 10 degrees.

UEFA says it is working with the Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) to make sure Arsenal's rearranged Europa League fixture against Vorskla Poltava goes ahead in Kiev on Thursday.

Asked about his goal, he said: "You know what, I've probably scored more in away games too!"

Emery used the opportunity to blood more academy talent as Zech Medley, Bukayo Sako and Charlie Gilmour were introduced from the bench on a night where Arsenal got the job done despite all the uncertainty over the game.

"It's very cold here like it is in Poltava but we're going to play with this weather". The club does everything possible to play at home.

Nketiah drew a save out of Bohdan Shust at the start of the second half, with Smith Rowe seeing a second of the night eventually ruled out for offside after he turned home Stephan Lichtsteiner's deflected cross. Arsenal have 'MAJOR" problem to deal with hours before clash Arsene Wenger: "Arsenal legend moves a step closer to Bayern Munich 'For us, let it be an additional motivation. "The individually quality was good and it was a big performance for us". One good example for other young players.

Arsenal said in a statement on their website they were "currently working closely with UEFA and the relevant authorities to ensure the safety and welfare" of all Gunners fans travelling to the match and would provide further updates on match arrangements as soon as they had received confirmation from UEFA. They have a lot of chances to help us today with this performance and also because we think they can help us. We want and have the responsibility with the young players like Emile but also the others for them to stay, work and show us that they can improve and stay with us.
