Saka and Trossard score as Arsenal beat Sevilla

Leandro Trossard and Bukayo Saka scored as Arsenal claimed a comfortable Champions League victory over lacklustre Sevilla.

Trossard, who started as number nine with Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah both injured, swept the Gunners in front in the 29th minute.

Saka clinched the three points in the 64th minute, racing away from the defence before slotting home.

Arsenal top Group B on nine points from four games, while Sevilla are bottom of the table.

The Spanish side, who won the Europa League last season, are still looking for their first win in this Champions League campaign.

They were comprehensively outplayed by the hosts, who took a deserved lead when Trossard finished Saka’s low cross after the England winger was set away by Jorginho’s fine through ball.

Saka turned from provider to finisher with a composed second goal, having been played through by Gabriel Martinelli.

The game ended on a concerning note for Arsenal, however, as Saka limped off with five minutes left after twisting his ankle.

PSV’s 1-0 victory over Lens denied Arsenal the chance to clinch a place in the last 16 with two matches to spare.

But Mikel Arteta’s men will qualify with one win from their final two group matches, regardless of other results.
