A roundup of all of Thursday’s (late) action in the Europa League…

[ UEL (early) roundup: Man United held to scoreless draw; Wolves win in Turkey ]

Arsenal 4-0 Standard Liege

While Manchester United labored to a 0-0 draw in the Netherlands and Wolverhampton Wanderers left it very late in their win in Turkey, one Premier League side took care of business and made it look astoundingly easy: Arsenal.

Gabriel Martinelli scored twice inside the game’s first 16 minutes, which was more than enough for the Gunners to brush Belgian side Standard Liege aside. Joe Willock (22nd minute) and Dani Ceballos (57th) grabbed goals as well, for good measure.

That’s two clean-sheet wins in two group games for Arsenal, who hammered Eintracht Frankfurt to the tune of 3-0 last time out. Unai Emery’s side sits second in Group F, three points clear of the two sides they’ve already beaten.

Sevilla 1-0 APOEL Nicosia

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez scored the only goal, his second in two Europa League games this season, to give Sevilla a narrow victory over Cypriot side APOEL. Hernandez joined Sevilla from West Ham United last month and, while he hasn’t yet started a game or found the back of the net in La Liga play, he has proven a valuable weapon in European competition.
