Arsenal will be happy with their work in their first Europa League game of the campaign.
The Gunners were impressive in attack as they won 3-0, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Joe Willock and Bukayo Saka scoring the goals.
Even more incredible than the convincing away victory was the fact that the Gunners managed to keep a clean sheet. It is only the second time they have been able to do so this term, and it came against a side that reached the semi-finals of the competition last season.
There were several fringe players included in the backline, including Emiliano Martinez.
The Argentinian goalkeeper put in a commanding display, making seven saves to keep the Eagles at bay. Whilst Bernd Leno is expected to retake his place against Aston Villa this weekend, 27-year-old Martinez has at least shown that he is ready to step into the Germany international’s shoes should he need to.

Martinez was outstanding tonight. Transition defense needs work. Fullbacks caught upfield too often. Clean sheet huge, but Frankfurt put many shots over. Aubameyang miss at 1-0 scary. Saka, Willock played well. ESR needs to improve. Nice to have Pépé and Ceballos off the bench. https://t.co/HlxDH0WXzH

Out of this world. My blood runs arsenal but I live in Reading and have a season ticket and watching him last season i really thought he should be Arsenal’s number one. He has learnt his trade well and has worked with the best! He deserves his shot now.
