Smith Rowe On Target As Gunner Extend Winning Run

05 Octobre, 2018, 01:57 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

The move paid off, initially.

It was the ideal start as we opened the scoring in the fourth minute with Nacho Monreal's goal-bound header from a Mohamed Elneny corner finding the back of the net via a big deflection off Sokratis. So far, so good.

Emile Smith-Rowe had been given just his second start in the Arsenal first team and the young Englishman should have gotten on the scoresheet in the 18th minute, but his sliding effort at the back post after meeting a low Sead Kolasinac cross was sent into the side-netting.

On this occasion, Smith Rowe could not stretch far enough to apply the finishing touch, and though the 18-year-old's starring moment was to come, the fine-flowing move was the last real positive to be drawn from Arsenal's dabble with 3-4-3.

'Kolasinac is a player who wants to go forward but he doesn't want to defend.

First, it was Mahir Madatov who ghosted past Kolasinac, and soon after it was Medvedev who caught him unawares.

Emery made the decision to change to a back four at the break but it was Qarabag who benefitted from the change with the home side having a sustained period on the ball after the restart.

But there was some joy for Arsenal to take from their 5,000-mile round trip.

First half: Sokratis has given the Gunners an early lead. 1-0.

Second half: Smith Rowe latches on to Iwobi's pass to make it 2-0.

Arsenal have registered seven wins in a row and will be hoping to extend the winning run to eight.

Ozil has travelled with the Arsenal squad to Azerbaijan but is unlikely to be included in Unai Emery's starting eleven. We may not see a return to 3-4-3, but after Sokratis, Smith Rowe and Guendouzi made it 20 different goalscorers in this competition for Arsenal since the start of last season, we can expect that figure to rise further before Christmas.
