Arsenal demolish BATE Borisov in Europa League clash

GETTY    
     Theo Walcott has had limited game time at Arsenal this season

Mathieu Debuchy, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Mohamed Elneny all got on the score-sheet while Denis Polyakov scored an own goal and Olivier Giroud converted a penalty.

"You can say the opponent was not at the level of the Premier League and I would agree with you but you can only do your job and that's what we did, in a convincing way with remarkable spirit and finished well the job in this group stage".

Wilshere's first goal in over two years nearly sent a message of its own to Wenger who witnessed the Gunners academy product involved heavily in three of the six goals Arsenal scored.

On Thursday, however, they play host to a BATE Borisov side who need to pick up three points to keep alive their hopes of reaching the round of 32. "And that's very good news for us".

"It was done in a stylish way, and a technically high-quality game from our side", Wenger said.

With nothing at stake for Arsenal, only about 30,000 fans showed up for the game - although the club still announced ticket sales of 54,648.

Remembering those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor
But this year was different because the event took place on the Milwaukee instead of at the Fleet Reserve on Mayport Road. The flight will be for up to 60 World War II veterans as they head to Washington , D.C., to visit their memorials.

Wenger's men dictated the game with crisp passes and elegant build-up play before Danny Welbeck's trickery took him into the box after 37 minutes and, just as it looked as though the ball had run away from Arsenal, Walcott pounced and fired it home from the edge of the six-yard box.

"You forget about that once you're on the pitch".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger rules out selling attacker Theo Walcott to West Ham United or Everton in the January transfer window.

"You respect the decision of your fans".

The Belarussians travelled to the Emirates knowing anything less than a win would mean that they failed to make the knock-out rounds of the competition, but our side refused to roll over despite having already cemented their place as group winners in their previous outing.

The Gunners, who won their group easily, will be seeded in the draw and face a tie against one of the 11 runners-up from the Europa League groups or one of the four third-placed Champions League teams with the fewest points in the group stage - which includes Dortmund and Napoli.
