BATE Borisov 2-4 Arsenal: Walcott double ensures important Europa League win [Best Tweets]

A heavily depleted Arsenal side triumphed against BATE Borisov in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, thanks to a brace from Theo Walcott.

Arsene Wenger had chosen to not travel with several key first-team players, despite the injury list. And as the Frenchman named the starting lineup for the game, the fans were eager to see how the side would fare against BATE Borisov – a team that has been known to surprise.

However, the match ended up being a very competitive and entertaining affair, an end-to-end game that ended up with a 4-2 win for Arsenal. Theo Walcott scored a brace to get Arsenal off to a flying start while Olivier Giroud and Rob Holding chipped in with a goal each.

Walcott was hailed by the Arsenal fans for his clinical performance and his recent form, which has been very prolific despite the overall display.

Although Walcott starred on the night with two goals, all eyes were on Jack Wilshere and Joe Willock – the former playing in an advanced role and the latter starting his first senior game.
