As expected, Arsenal took the victory over the Dundalk minnows in the Europa League, winning 3-0 in their group match at the Emirates Stadium.
It was largely a stress-free night for the much-changed Gunners squad, with Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Nicolas Pepe all on the scoresheet.
We say largely stress-free, as there was a point where Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang seemed to lose his temper despite his team having a three-goal lead.
Mikel Arteta’s side missed the opportunity to take a 4-0 lead in the 79th minute as Kieran Tierney kicked the ball in from the left.
It’s a lack that the manager, fans and anyone associated with Arsenal will already have forgotten, but perhaps not Aubameyang.
Shortly after Tierney’s loss, cameras caught substitute Aubameyang, who appeared to be slamming the seats at Emirates Stadium in frustration.
Whatever the reasons he threw the siege, there’s no doubt that Aubameyang will think he could have done better than Tierney.
But Arteta will surely remember one of his star players this weekend as Arsenal take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The Gunners enter Sunday’s clash in not particularly good form, having lost their last three league games.
Meanwhile, United enter the game after an impressive 5-0 demolition of RB Leipzig in the Champions League, with Marcus Rashford in a superb hat trick in the second half.
