Egypt worldwide Mohamed Elneny provided an assist as Arsenal beat Vorskla Poltava in the UEFA Europa League group stage.

The switch was finally confirmed after a chaotic day that was capped by a 90-minute delay to the Gunners' flight out.

The match will now take place in the Ukrainian capital, more than 300km west of Poltava, at the original scheduled time of 1.55am tomorrow morning (Singapore time).

"We were thinking today about our victory and also to create with the right players and to give chances to a lot of players". It is not easy for Vorskla or for UEFA, this decision.

"When UEFA said to us we can play here safely we chose to come and respect the UEFA decision".

Neither Poltava, where the game was originally to be played, nor Kyiv will come under martial law.

The 18-year-old was on hand to open the scoring in the 10th minute following good work from Eddie Nketiah and he was a constant threat to the Ukrainian outfit throughout the game. "Of course for Poltava, it's a big disadvantage because they wanted to play at home".

The match was now resembling a training match for Emery's young Gunners and they duly scored a third just before the break. "Now we're waiting for an answer from the Olympic Stadium on whether they are ready to host us". "But we respect the decision". The most important change is that it affects the supporters.

"We were preparing very much and it was expected to be like a holiday".

"The players have been working with us in all sessions and also in pre-season".

The political tensions, coupled with the inconvenience for both clubs, will linger longer than Thursday's match, especially as Arsenal have already qualified for the knockout stages, with a win in Kiev enough to secure top spot.

"The main target was to win, we needed a strong team reaction and we did it well tonight", said the World Cup victor Giroud.
