Unai Emery "excited" by prospect of winning Europa League with Arsenal

Europa League

Emery is bidding to win the trophy for the fourth time as manager having triumphed on three occasions when in charge of Sevilla.

Arsenal take on a Napoli side who narrowly missed out on qualification from the Champions League group stage after finishing third behind Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.

He set up Ainsley Maitland-Niles for the second ten minutes later to put the Gunners ahead on away goals.

"The Champions League is very important but the Europa League grew up a lot and now is giving every team the possibility to play in the Champions League", he said.

"A domestic league like here, we have six teams playing for the top four".

However, it was not forthcoming and with VAR not in operation in the Europa League unlike the more lucrative Champions League, Maitland-Niles's downward header from Aubameyang's cross was allowed to stand.

"But also it is one title".

"I think we can feel the possibility to win one title, doing it with hard moments like today and playing also big teams".

Only one side in Europa League knockout history had previously successfully overturned a 3-1 first-leg defeat - Fulham downing Serie A giants Juventus in 2009-10 - but Arsenal moved into the quarters, where they could face London rivals Chelsea.

"And create with our supporters a big atmosphere".

Then he donned the Black Panther mask to celebrate with the fans and team mates.

Both Chelsea and Arsenal were drawn away from home in the first leg before returning to London for the second contest.

Asked about the motive behind it, Aubameyang told BT Sport: "I needed something, a mask to represent me and the Black Panther represents me".

"The second goal was clearly offside", said a frustrated Stephan. "Black Panther.in Africa and Gabon we are called the Black Panthers so it represents me - that's it". In the past Arsenal have struggled to break down sides, and they still do sometimes, but the striker's performance today won the match.
