• Arsenal 3-0 Dundalk
  • Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Nicolas Pépé all score

For a side that has looked laboured in recent weeks, Arsenal rattled through the gears when it mattered. They overwhelmed Dundalk, who were by no means disgraced, by scoring three goals within 257 seconds either side of half-time and the runout may prove useful in playing some of their fringe men into form.

Joe Willock was the best player on the pitch and doubled their lead emphatically after Eddie Nketiah had broken the deadlock; Nicolas Pépé then provided another flash of his undoubted ability with an excellent third and Arsenal were able to see out a drama-free night before a more consequential test against Manchester United.
