Unai Emery reinforced his decision to omit Mesut Ozil from the starting line-up after Arsenal beat Bournemouth 2-1 in the Premier League.
Jefferson Lerma's own goal gave Arsenal the lead, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's finish in the 2nd half netted Arsenal a 2-1 win over Bournemouth.
Arsenal are monitoring the security situation in Ukraine but do not expect the country's political tensions with Russia to affect their preparations for Thursday's Europa League game against FC Vorskla.
UEFA said on Monday that the game will go ahead as planned even as the Ukraine's President, Petro Poroshenko, called for martial law. Ukraine's navy said six of its sailors were wounded when Russian coastguards opened fire on three ships in waters off Crimea and then seized them late on Sunday.
