It was a big win for Arsenal against Standard Liege in the Europa League last night.
The Gunners ended up being 4-0 winners thanks to a brace from Gabriel Martinelli, plus goals from Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos. They now top their group after two games, having scored eight and conceded none.

It was also a special day for Hector Bellerin as well. The Spain international was making his first start of the season after returning from injury. Not only that, he was given the captain’s armband in the absence of Granit Xhaka.
Of course, the Switzerland international was recently appointed as skipper of the Emirates outfit, a decision that did not go down too well with the club’s fans.
In contrast, though, there was a far more positive reaction to the 24-year-old being given the responsibility against the Belgian side.
The supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
can we have bellerin as captain for the rest of the season please ? #AFC

Bellerin seems like a natural captain.
Tierney is the shining light of our defence.
Martellini was fantastic. Willock and Nelson are the rising stars.
Emery should be playing this team at the #PremierLeague .

Hector Bellerin sprinting over to get in the face of Leige after Martinelli being fouled to support his team is the kind of energy I need. My captain ❤️
