Mikel Arteta’s handed a debut to Iceland goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson, a summer signing from Dijon, and he played behind a makeshift central defence.

The Gunners have three centre-backs injured, including David Luiz, with another two not registered for the Europa League.

Nketiah pounced from close range to give the Gunners the lead and Joe Willock blasted a shot into the roof of the net 125 seconds later.

They cruised after that but could not add a fourth against the Irish side.

Arsenal – who had never faced a side from the Republic of Ireland before – have now won both their opening Europa League games, while Dundalk have lost both of theirs.

Dundalk made a bit of history as the first team in the 10 years of the Europa League not to commit a single foul in a game.
