  • Russian tensions forces UEFA to move Vorskla Poltava vs Arsenal to safer haven of Kiev

The escalating tensions between Russian Federation and Ukraine off the coast of Crimea have spilled over into football with UEFA deciding to relocate Arsenal's Europa League tie against FC Vorskla Poltava on Thursday to Kiev following the introduction of martial law in some parts of Ukraine.

With sights set firmly on the North London derby, a vastly weakened Arsenal team looks set to take to the pitch against Vorskla Poltava in the Europa League.

A youthful Gunners side made light work of the uprooted Ukrainian outfit as first-half goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Aaron Ramsey and Joe Willock put the result beyond doubt before the interval.

The build-up to the game has been overshadowed by the confusion over where it might take place.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles drew the first save from Bogdan Shust soon before the opening goal, which was sacked into an empty net by Smith Rowe after Eddie Nketiah's barraging run into the box forced Artur to poke the ball away from the hands of his own goalkeeper. The young players are going to have chances.

Ramsey doubled the advantage shortly before the half-hour mark as he won and converted a penalty - the Wales global going down after minimal contact from Vorskla defender Igor Perduta before coolly converting the spot-kick. Matteo Guendouzi slots into midfield with Mohamed Elneny.

Osei-Tutu, 20, is among seven young players who have been called by Unai Emery for the crunch game at the Oleksiy Butovsky Vorskla Stadium in Ukraine.

Emery used the opportunity to blood more academy talent as Zech Medley, Bukayo Sako and Charlie Gilmour were introduced from the bench on a night where Arsenal got the job done despite all the uncertainty over the game.
