Arsenal continued the resurgence under Unai Emery with their eight consecutive win in all competitions since losing their first two.

Goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Emily Smith-Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi gave the gunners a comfortable win against Qarabag.

Unai Emery made nine changes to the team that started their last game in the Premier League.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan missed the trip on family advice due to tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Also missing was Aubameyang(illness) and Ramsey who requested to be with his wife who is due to give birth.

Papastathopoulos opened the scoring for Arsenal when he deflected in Nacho Monreal’s header four minutes into the game.

Qarabag grew into the game and had some chances to pull level but some fine stops by Bernd Leno helped Arsenal take the lead into break.

Eight minutes into the second half, Smith-Rowe scored his first senior goal for the club after fine work by Alex Iwobi.

Guendozi wrapped the victory for the London side when his crisp strike found the bottom left corner of Vagner’s goal.

Unai emery’s men will now shift focus to the Premier League where they play Fulham in the London Derby.
