Arsenal weren’t at their best in Norway but have extended their winning run in the Europa League to three matches after another victory over Bodo/Glimt.

Bukayo Saka scored the scrappy solitary goal midway through the first half, although the Gunners could have been pegged back soon after had Amahl Pellegrinio not got his effort wrong after being put through one on one with Matt Turner.

Bodo/Glimt did have other chances to equalise, including another Pellegrino shot that was well saved by Turner. But Arsenal hung on to claim all three points.

Manchester United had 33 shots against Omonia at Old Trafford, eventually scoring with the 33rd and final effort in stoppage time.

Omonia goalkeeper Francis Uzoho, a stand-in for usual stopper Fabiano, was in inspired form, repelling shots from all angles. His most spectacular save saw fingertips divert Casemiro’s long-range drive onto the cross bar.

But the resistance was eventually broken by substitute Scott McTominay, whose low finish from close-range finally beat Uzoho.

West Ham ultimately secured victory in their clash with Anderlecht in the opening half hour, with Jarrod Bowen on the scoresheet for the third time in four games in all competitions.
