EUROPA LEAGUE: Arsenal pull off an impressive comeback, AC Milan slum to an embarrassing defeat

Arsenal fought back to score a 4-1 win over Molde in the Europa League on Thursday.

Martin Ellingsen’s long-range strike gave the Norwegian champions a shock lead at Emirates Stadium on Thursday, but Kristoffer Haugen turned into his own net just before the break.

Substitute Sheriff Sinyan also scored at the wrong end before Nicolas Pepe drilled home, and Willock capped an impressive display with a late strike as a rejuvenated Arsenal raised their game in the second half.

A third win out of three puts Mikel Arteta’s team six three points were clear of their opponents at the top of Group B and well on course to qualify for the knockout stages.

AC Milan 0 – 3 Lille 

Milan’s unbeaten run came to a shuddering halt after 11 games as Yusuf Yazici’s hat-trick secured an emphatic 3-0 victory for Lille in the Europa League.

Inspired by the form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who already has eight goals to his name – Stefano Pioli’s side has made a wonderful start to 2020-21.

But Ibrahimovic, who was subbed off in the 62nd minute, failed to lift the Rossoneri in a dismal showing at San Siro, with Yazici running the show.

The 23-year-old Turkey international opened the scoring from the spot 21 minutes in, before becoming the first player to score an away hat-trick against Milan in all competitions since Rivaldo in October 2000 with quickfire strikes early in the second half to move Lille one point clear at the top of Group H.
