|Europa: Morata Finally Scores As Chelsea Beat Vidi, Arsenal & Milan See Wins by queenonyebiri1(f): 11:49pm On Oct 04, 2018|
A roundup of Thursday's UEFA Europa League group stage matches, with Chelsea, Arsenal, Celtic and Rangers all in action.
Chelsea 1 - 0 Vidi FC
Alvaro Morata finally found the target in the Europa League as Chelsea beat Hungarian champions Vidi 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Morata missed a host of chances in the opening Group L win at PAOK in Greece two weeks ago and spurned a glorious opportunity in the first half on Thursday night.
The 25-year-old made amends with 20 minutes to go, but only after Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri had turned to Eden Hazard in a bid to break a deadlock which stood due to the Blues' wasteful finishing.
Ross Barkley, another substitute, headed Hazard's free-kick against the crossbar when Chelsea were 1-0 up, but there were anxious moments before the Blues secured a second win from two games.
Qarabag FK 0 - 3 Arsenal
Arsenal young goalscorers, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Emile Smith Rowe and Matteo Guendouzi helped the Gunners maintain their 100 per cent start in the UEFA Europa League with a 3-0 victory over Qarabag in Azerbaijan (Click here for more).
Salzburg 3 - 1 Celtic
James Forrest was sent off as Celtic let a first-half lead slip on the way to a bruising defeat in Salzburg.
It was a dream start for the Scottish Champions in Austria in this Europa League tie when Odsonne Edouard fired them ahead after two minutes.
But Munas Dabbur and Takumi Minamino scored after the break, before Forrest was red-carded after conceding a penalty, which Dabbur converted. Zlatko Junuzovic also hit a post as Celtic had no response.
After an assured defensive performance in their opening 45 minutes, the Austrians picked holes in Celtic with poor defending at all three goals.
Their opening win over Rosenborg leaves them level on points with Salzburg and Germans Leipzig, who beat the Norwegians 3-0 in the other group fixture.
AC Milan 3 - 1 Olympiacos
AC Milan hit back after trailing early to dispatch Olympiakos 3-1 at the San Siro.
Miguel Guerrero grabbed a shock lead for the visitors only for the Italian giants to run amok with a brace by Patrick Cutrone and one from Gonzalo Higuain.
Rangers 3 - 1 Rapid Wien
Rangers came from behind to claim a deserved win over Rapid Vienna.
Veton Berisha broke the deadlock to give the Austrians the lead at Ibrox, but it was short-lived with Alfredo Morelos replying instantly.
Rangers' second came with just six minutes to play as Morelos was brought down in the box, James Tavernier scoring from the spot.
And Morelos finished the game off with a smart counter attack at the death.
With Villarreal drawing 3-3 away to Spartak Moscow, Rangers have the advantage ahead of their double-header with the Russians.
It means Steven Gerrard's side are still unbeaten in Europe this season, with five wins and five draws.

Morata needs more goals for his confidence to be high, sarri should continue using Giroud for now
