Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Debuchy have all made UEFA’s Europa League team of the week after being involved in Arsenal’s 6-0 victory over BATE Borisov.
On Thursday evening, Theo, Jack and Debuchy all put in special performances against BATE in order to help Arsenal to a 6-0 win. The Gunners had already qualified for the knock-out round and finished top of their group but it was good to wrap up the group stages with such an emphatic victory.
All three players scored. Debuchy found the back of the net in the 11th minute with a superb striker’s finish; Theo followed after plugging away for the entire first half and Jack scored just before the break.
What’s more, Jack and Theo also provided an assist each.
In the second half, BATE scored an own goal via Denis Polyakov, Olivier Giroud slotted home a penalty after being made to take it twice and Mohamed Elneny became another unlikely goalscorer to make it six.
Here are the other players to make UEFA’s Europa League team of the week:
- Goalkeeper: Nenad Erić (Astana)
- Defenders: Sotirios Papagiannopoulos (Östersund), Marin Aničić (Astana) and Mykola Morozyuk (Dynamo Kyiv)
- Midfielders: Raúl García (Athletic) and Ademola Lookman (Everton)
- Forwards: Aritz Aduriz (Athletic) and Júnior Moraes (Dynamo Kyiv)
