  • GOAL!!! SMITH ROWE DOUBLES ARSENAL'S LEAD!! Saka and Smith Rowe combine to find Lacazette and the striker looks to return the ball to Saka, but it's cut out. The ball comes back to the striker, however, who manages to prod it into the path of Smith Rowe and the attacking midfielder steers it in from close range! It's 2-0 to Arsenal!
