Stuttering Arsenal See Off Dundalk 3-Nill

Posted by

Within four minutes, Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Nicolas Pepe scored either side of half-time to hand Arsenal a 3-0 victory over Dundalk.

It took more than half an hour for the Gunners to challenge 39-year-old goalkeeper Gary Rogers as their predictable play proved too easy to protect for the visitors, as the champions of the League of Ireland seemed likely to hold their hosts at the break to a scoreless draw.

Pepe ‘s amazing third less than a minute after the restart killed the game as a contest, but Mikel Arteta, who lamented the finishing of his side ahead of the game, may have been disappointed to see his side dominate possession and territory, but just six shots on goal over the 90 minutes, and struggled to challenge Rogers on the way to victory for the rest of the second half.
