Europa League: Arsenal defeat Red Star Belgrade to maintain ideal run

Arsenal left it late to win 1-0 in their third Europa League group game against Red Star Belgrade, with Olivier Giroud scoring a spectacular goal to seal the win.

Progression from Group H now looks a certainty, with the Gunners sat five points clear in first place after three wins from as many matches.

After Milan Borjan denied Walcott with his legs from close-range, Richmond Boakye felt he should have had a penalty when Petr Cech tripped him. Walcott squanders chances like this far too often when he really should be putting the ball in the back of the net. And part of the package for opposition teams when they come to the Serbian capital to play Red Star, is the tunnel walk like no other.

And former United star Keane believes Arsenal are struggling to keep up with their Premier League rivals. Nemanja Radonjic was found at the back post and his volley was well saved by Petr Cech before Reiss Nelson blocked the rebound.

But the policies outlined by the White House on Sunday night are likely to push Democrats away from the negotiating table. About 690,000 immigrants are enrolled in DACA , but their work permits are set to begin expiring in March.

Following a typical pre-match offering, Red Star's fans bucked tradition and unfurled another huge banner for the start of the second half, but it could not lift the stodgy fare on the pitch. They went to Real Madrid, they were very fearless and showed a lot of courage.

On his goal - somewhat similar to the Puskas Award-finalist strike he scored last season against Crystal Palace - Giroud said he only attempted the audacious shot after he failed to locate a teammate to whom he could pass. Another let-off for Arsenal.

The home side were reduced to ten men at the 80-minute mark and Arsenal took full advantage of the extra man. An absolutely fantastic team goal which was reminiscent of THAT goal v Norwich.

- Arsenal have won their last four Europa League/UEFA Cup away games, after losing five of the previous six (D1).
