Europa League results: Arsenal hammer Standard Liege and Celtic breeze past CFR Cluj after Man United are held by AZ Alkmaar

Arsenal continued their fine start to their Europa League campaign with a dominant 4-0 victory over Standard Liege.

Gabriel Martinelli was the star of the show at The Emirates, netting two delightful first-half goals and setting up another after
Mesut Ozil was completely left out of the squad by Unai Emery.

Martinelli impressed as Arsenal dominated
Martinelli, who scored twice on his first start for the club in last week’s Carabao Cup win over Nottingham Forest, repeated the feat with another double in three first-half minutes before Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos completed the rout.
Celtic extracted retribution from Cluj with a commanding 2-0 Europa League win at Parkhead.
The Hoops were knocked out of the Champions League qualifiers on aggregate by the Romanian outfit in August, following a shock 4-3 home defeat, but this time they found Celtic a different proposition.


Celtic were triumphant against Cluj at Parkhead
French striker Odsonne Edouard headed in the opener in the 20th minute as the Scottish champions dominated amid cascading rain.
Attacker Mohamed Elyounoussi added a second on the hour mark with a deflected drive to confirm a well-deserved win
Manchester United’s alarming away form continued as they were held by AZ Alkmaar in a 0-0 stalemate in The Hague.
After starting his reign with a club-record nine successive away wins in all competitions, Solskjaer’s subsequent wait for a victory on the road stretched to a 10th match on ADO Den Haag’s plastic pitch.

Uniteds poor form on the road continued
Willy Boly wrote his name into Wolves folklore as his stoppage-time goal snatched Wolves a 1-0 victory against Besiktas in the Europa League in Istanbul.
The game looked to be heading for a goalless draw but the big defender was on hand to score a goal befitting of a striker rather than a centre half.
Ruben Neves floated a ball over the top of the home defence and Boly took a touch before turning and firing the ball past Loris Karius, who smacked the pitch in frustration afterwards.


Christian Fassnacht scored a last-gasp winner for Young Boys as Rangers left the Stade de Suisse Wankdorf empty-handed following a 2-1 Europa League defeat.
Rangers looked comfortable on the artificial surface in an open first half and broke the deadlock in the 44th minute when Alfredo Morelos shook off a defender and darted into the box before sliding the ball into the net.
It took Young Boys just five minutes of the second half to level things up as Roger Assale fired in from close range.

And the hosts broke Rangers hearts deep into added time when Fassnacht fired in to snatch all three points.
