The Gunners had already beaten Rapid Vienna and Dundalk in Group B and continued on their way to the knockout stages with a solid if unspectacular 4-1 victory at the Emirates. Martin Ellingsen’s long-range effort gave the reigning Eliteserien champions a shock lead against a slow-starting Arsenal side which showed nine changes from the weekend win at Manchester United. But own goals from Kristoffer Haugen and Sheriff Sinyan either side of half-time turned the tide, with Nicolas Pepe and Joe Willock wrapping up the win with fine finishes.
