Arsenals Europa League opponents forced to walk to Emirates after bus shambles

Arsenal's Europa League opponents Bodo/Glimt had to walk to the Emirates after their bus got stuck in the narrow streets of north London.

It was just the beginning of a rough evening for the Norwegian side, who were thrashed 3-0 on Thursday night. Their task was already a big one, taking on a Gunners side that are unbeaten at home.

On their way to the Emirates, the team bus could not turn down a road and became stuck on a narrow bend. It meant that the players had to get off the bus and walk to the Emirates, instead.

But the players appeared in high spirits with many seeing the funny side as they made their way to the stadium. There were not many smiles, though, at full-time after shipping three goal in a 3-0 defeat.

Eddie Nketiah scored the opener before Rob Holding headed home soon after to double the lead before Fabio Vieira made it three after the break. It means that the Gunners are top of their Europa League group after two wins in two.

After the match, Arteta said: "I'm really happy with the win, six points and a clean sheet. But we lacked connection between the players, we lacked consistency and domination through the game.

"There were eight changes, you could feel that, the timing was missing. In the final third we looked very dangerous, the goals we scored were good goals."

Arsenal take on Liverpool next at the Emirates on Sunday as they look to continue their fine form. Arteta's side are top of the Premier League, ahead of Manchester city by a point.
