  • GOAL!!! PEPE PUTS ARSENAL IN FRONT!! It's a lovely strike from Arsenal's record signing! A left-wing cross from Willock finds him on the right side of the box and he takes one touch to control it before curling a vicious strike right into the top-left corner from a tight angle despite a touch from Linde! It's 1-0 to Arsenal! That will be a real relief for the Ivorian after his sending-off against Leeds.

  • GOAL!!! BALOGUN HAS HIS FIRST GOAL FOR ARSENAL!! On just his second appearance for the club and his first involvement in the game, he's found the net! Fellow substitute Smith Rowe gets into the box on the left and squares to the striker, who swivels and smashes a low shot down the middle that goes in off the goalkeeper! It's 3-0 to Arsenal!
