Arsenal come from behind to beat Molde 4-1 to extend their unbeaten start in the Europa League Group B encounter at Emirate Stadium.

The visitors struck first just after the 20-minute mark when Martin Ellingsen picked up the ball on the right flank, cut inside, and blasted a lovely left-footed shot past Bernd Leno to give Molde the early lead.

But it could have been more as Eddie Nketiah had what looked like a legal goal ruled out for offside after Nicolas Pepe’s pass, with Molde leading 1-0.

Kristoffer Haugen put past his own keeper while trying to intercept Nketiah’s cross to Joe Willock before Sead Kolasinac blazed a great chance over the bar.

Arsenal were in front soon after, though, thanks to another Molde’s own goal when Sheriff Sinyan shinned the ball into his own net.

Substitute Bukayo Saka picked out Pepe to make it 3-1 before Willock scored a deserved late goal, as Arsenal went three points clear at the top of the group with three games remaining

Arsenal, with two games to spare, could secure a place in the last 32 of the competition with victory in the return fixture in Norway on 26 November.
