Europa League: Arsenal v BATE Borisov, Chelsea v Malmo

Published

on

Arsenal reached the last 16 of the Europa League by comfortably seeing off BATE Borisov 3-0 on Thursday and overturning a first-leg deficit that had threatened one of the tournament favourites with elimination.

BATE came into the clash at the Emirates with hopes of an upset after beating Arsenal 1-0 in Belarus last week, but the hosts were level on aggregate after just three minutes when Zakhar Volkov sliced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s low cross past Denis Scherbitski in his own goal.

Unai Emery’s side poured forward and put themselves deservedly ahead in the tie when Shkodran Mustafi thumped home a header six minutes before the break.

Maksim Skavysh missed a good chance to put BATE ahead on away goals when Arsenal failed to clear three minutes after the restart, but another powerful header, this time from Sokratis on the hour mark, put the Gunners into Friday’s draw.

“We wanted this result but also we wanted to play for our supporters here, to improve and build our mentality after the first match away, which was not good. We did our best to come back (in the tie) and the team worked very well,” Emery told BT Sport.

Jurgen Klopp fined: Liverpool manager sanctioned for comments on referee

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was fined £45,000 ($83,000 AUD) by the Football Association on Thursday for suggesting referee Kevin Friend had favoured West Ham in his side’s 1-1 draw at the London Stadium earlier this month.

Klopp, whose side are currently second on goal difference in the Premier League behind Manchester City, said he thought Friend realised he should have ruled out Sadio Mane’s 22nd-minute opener as James Milner was clearly offside in the build-up and tried to make up for it over the remainder of the game.

“Jurgen Klopp has been fined £45,000 after accepting an FA charge for comments made following Liverpool’s league game against West Ham United on 4 February 2019,” the FA said in a statement.

Round 27

“His comments made during a post-match interview breached FA Rule E3(1), as they questioned the integrity of the match referee and/or implied bias.” In December Klopp was fined £8,000 after he charged onto the pitch to hug goalkeeper Alisson Becker following his side’s late derby win against Everton at Anfield.
