Arsenal progressed to the final four of the UEFA Europa League with a 3-0 aggregate victory over Napoli. "When you score in matches like this, we can take a good advantage with this goal". Tottenham have 67 points, while Arsenal have 66.

Petr Cech denied the ex-Real Madrid forward before Milik fluffed his lines from a close-range header - misses Napoli would regret shortly after the abrupt conclusion to what might prove Ramsey's last Arsenal appearance. That hasn't been the case for a long time with the Gunners experiencing early exits from the Champions League or the top four race far before this stage in recent years.

"Arsenal must be careful as a different game compared to the Emirates is waiting for them".

Although Lacazette may take the plaudits for his brilliant goal, Maitland-Niles showed incredible maturity to help guide the Gunners to their second consecutive clean sheet away from home. Watford though had to play nearly 80 minutes with ten men after captain Troy Deeney was dismissed for an elbow on Lucas Torreira.

'I am happy for this performance but most important is the three points'. "Every game we fight for the best, from the beginning of the season we have improved a lot". We know it's going to be very hard because they can score two or more goals with their attacking players.

With big games coming every few days, Emery was able to welcome back Switzerland worldwide Granit Xhaka for his first club appearance in over a month.

"I don't think this will affect us at all", he told watfordfc.com. "If we believe in ourselves to the very end we can pull off something really great".
