Arsenal maintained their three-point lead atop Europa League Group E on Thursday with a 3-0 win against Vorskla.

Unai Emery's heavily rotated squad had a three-goal cushion at the break thanks to first-half goals from Emile Smith Rowe and Joseph Willock goals either side of an Aaron Ramsey penalty.

The match, which had been in doubt due to security concerns in the Ukraine, was moved from Poltava to Kiev after Ukraine imposed martial law in parts of the country.

Arsenal, who have already qualified for the knockout stages, finish group play against Qarabag at the Emirates on Dec. 13, needing only a draw to ensure top spot over Portugal's Sporting CP, who are also into the round of 32.
