- 204 views
Unai Emery became the first manager to win 32 games in the Europa League after he guided the Gunners to a 4-2 victory over Vorskla Poltava.
The Gunners dominated the group stage tie from start to finish, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring twice against the Ukrainian side. Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil put Arsenal 4-0 up before 2 goals from Vladimir Chesnakov and Vyacheslav Sharpar hit two brilliant consolation strikes late on.
Emery has great pedigree in this competition, winning the title on three separate occasions with Sevilla.
And his 32nd match win is the most of any manager in the competition. Goalscorer Aubameyang was happy with the team’s performance, after making his debut in the competition for the Gunners.
‘I think we played well in the first half and in the beginning of the second as well,’ he said. ‘We have to improve and try to fight not to concede a goal like we did in the last minute.
