Unai Emery hails Arsenal for 'growing up under pressure' after Europa win

Unai Emery hails Arsenal for 'growing up under pressure' after Europa win

With Arsenal now locked in a battle with Manchester United and Chelsea for the fourth and fifth places in the Premier League, the Europa League could be their only chance of qualifying for European football next year.

The Gunners fought back from a 3-1 away defeat at Rennes in the first leg of their last-16 tie to qualify for the final eight.

Unai Emery's side will find out their next opponents when the draw is made on Friday and Cech is hopeful the Europa League title can prove a fitting final chapter for his career.

"In the domestic league, like here, we have six teams playing to be in the top four". I said to the players today, I am excited about this competition.

Aubameyang missed two big chances inside a minute to complete his first hat-trick in Arsenal colours, poking wide of the post with just Koubek to beat and then skewing wide of the same post once teed up by Ramsey in front of goal.

"We played Manchester United on Sunday and today against Rennes after we were away in the first leg".

"We are going to think the same before every match".

In the past the striker has worn Batman and Spiderman masks to toast goals - but he explained why this time was a special moment.

"I needed the mask to represent me", Aubameyang said to BT Sport after his sixth brace of the season in all competitions.

"Black Africa and Gabon we are called the Black Panthers so it represents me - that's it".

Trailing 3-1 after the first leg Aubameyang got Arsenal off to the flawless start in the first five minutes, turning home Aaron Ramsey's cross.

Ismaila Sarr scored the third goal for his side last week but the Rennes winger struggled to make a positive impression in the second leg.

"That goal changed a lot of things".

"Then he made a challenge on (Ramy) Bensebaini which was also borderline, but the decision didn't go our way. It's a learning curve for a club of our level, we don't have the power of Arsenal".
