And Emery, who brought 12 academy products to Ukraine for this game, said he is hoping the club's other youngsters can learn from the England youth worldwide.

Unai Emery hailed Emile Smith Rowe as an example for Arsenal's young players to follow after the 18-year-old scored in a Europa League win against Vorskla.

The venue for tonight's group E clash was switched to Kiev's Olimpiyskiy Stadium from the Stadion Vorskla in Poltava, about 185 miles east of the capital, after martial law was declared in parts of the country. One good example for other young players. We think they can help us but they need the confidence of playing matches, not only working with us in the training sessions.

The hosts said they were not told of the stadium switch and were on Wednesday night still arguing that the match should be moved back to Poltava, though their players did travel to Kiev.

This can come as a real positive to Arsenal fans, as Arsenal will need to grab the game by the scruff of the neck against Spurs. It's not an easy decision for UEFA to make either. UEFA yesterday found the best decision to play and also with protecting everybody, us and them.

Arsenal are already through to the Europa League's last 32 and will win the group with victory over a side they beat 4-2 in London in September. The young players are going to have chances.

UEFA is now working closely with the Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) to ensure that the match goes ahead in the Olympiskiy stadium in Kyiv tomorrow.

"We were ready to play in Poltava; we are ready to play in Kiev".

Emery also named a bench containing only two senior players and handed second half debuts to Zech Medley, Bukayo Saka and Charlie Gilmour.
