Europa League: Arsenal 4-2 Bate Borisov

Bate Borisov 2-4 Arsenal – All The Goals And Best Bits

However, he did still find it tough to stop Arsenal's intricate play like Hayduchk and Milunovic.

"People sometimes forget things in football".

In Borisov, Jack Wilshere broke down the left and provided a flawless cross for Walcott to net from close range in the ninth minute, just a minute after he hit the post. A fit Wilshere is a class above all those players; he just needed a stage to demonstrate that superiority. Wilshere was again involved, skipping past the Bate defence before crossing along the six yard box. The stopper rolled the ball out of his territory straight into the path of Walcott, with the 28 year-old gratefully accepting the gift. It is a remarkable achievement.

Jack Wilshere was successful with 92 per cent of his attempted passes against BATE Borisov. His header was saved initially but Walcott was able to get to the rebound and put Arsenal in front.

The Gunners were in complete control, with Wilshere seeing a second goal disallowed for offside, although Ivancic had David Ospina anxious with a half-volley that bounced just wide.

It looked like both side were content to call it a day. When the lights came back on, Alassane Plea scored his second. Rob Holding slipped as the cross came in. Wilshere was flawless in the first-half, helping Arsenal to a 3-1 lead the break.

Felipe Caicedo and Ciro Immobile scored in a 2-0 success for Lazio while Nice were 3-0 victors at home to Vitesse, with Alassane Plea on the scoresheet either side of a Allan Saint-Maximin goal.

Theo Walcott has revealed that he passed up the chance of a Europa League hat-trick so that Arsenal team mate Olivier Giroud could notch his 100th goal for the club.

Arsenal have won four of their last five in all competitions, but sit 7th in the standings after a slow start which saw them lose to Stoke and Liverpool.

Mikhail Gordeichuk made it 4-2 with just over 20 minutes remaining when he found the back of the net from six yards.

The goal raised the volume in the stadium and Ospina was forced to claw out Igor Stasevich's in-swinging freekick but in truth it was the visitors who looked the more likely to re-assert their three-goal cushion. It was a bad error from the BATE keeper and it was punished accordingly. Could've done better on the second. He didn't have much to do at the back but was a menace from set pieces offensively. Arsenal haven't utilised their full-backs as often in recent weeks which gave Nelson a quieter afternoon. I have only played two full 90 minutes.

"You are always playing for your future but I am happy to be back", he said. He didn't have a great deal to do defensively but was a threat moving forward at times.

Walcott added that it was a slight concern to see Wenger's charges take their foot off the gas after the hour mark, but admitted it was a good performance overall. The Englishman seems to be adapting to this formation and played more as a striker than a right-winger.
