Vorskla vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Russian tensions forces UEFA to move Vorskla Poltava vs Arsenal to safer haven of Kiev

However, the Gunners are proceeding as normal with Emery holding a news conference at the venue on Wednesday evening after arriving in Ukraine.

Emery left almost all of his Premier League regulars at home, with one eye toward Sunday's North London Derby.

Around 500 Arsenal supporters were due in Ukraine and some had already travelled to Poltava ahead of the match - meaning they were left with a long journey across the country if they wished to take in the fixture. UEFA yesterday found the best decision to play and also with protecting everybody, us and them. They have a lot of chances to help us today with this performance and also because we think they can help us.

"Every cup we're in we want to win. The young players are going to have chances".

However, Vorskla are doing "everything they can" to host the game at their own home ground.

Under Arsene Wenger's reign the north London side traditionally struggled in November, but with Emery as boss this season they managed five games without tasting defeat.

"We need to respect UEFA's decision because it's not easy for Vorskla".

"The decision is not easy but with big responsibility".

The switch to the Ukrainian capital was a logistical nightmare for Arsenal staff, who had already finalised their travel and accommodation to play in Poltava. In the 90 minutes, we want to do our work here.

The market has reacted accordingly to the likelihood of squad rotation with Arsenal priced at at 4/6 to come out on top against their inconsistent opponents.

Fellow teenager Joe Willock also scored his first goal for the club, while striker Eddie Nketiah was handed his first start under Emery.

Mkhitaryan is also back in Ukraine, where he spent three seasons with Shakhtar Donetsk before joining Borussia Dortmund in 2013. I am sure 500 Arsenal fans would have spent a lot of money and so would their local visitors, but as for it changing the result, I am not so sure.... "I am ready to play in Poltava, I am ready to play in Kiev".
