Pierre Emerick Aubameyang fires Arsenal back into

The Premier League side began confidently in defence of their first-leg advantage and did not allow a couple of close defensive shaves and a hamstring injury to Aaron Ramsey to throw them off course.

- Since returning to the Premier League in 2015-16, Watford have picked up 15 red cards in the competition, more than any other side.

Arsenal have set up firmly to control their 2-0 lead over Napoli in their Europa League quarterfinal second leg. Unai Emery has made five changes to the team that narrowly secured a victory over Watford on Monday.

Then there was a racist Snapchat video posted by an Arsenal fan during last week's first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals, when Koulibaly's own-goal contributed to a 2-0 win by the London club.

"That [Juve] match teaches us that the Champions League and European clashes in general are always unpredictable", he said.

Arsenal enters the day in sixth place, trailing fourth-place Chelsea by three points but with the luxury of having two games in hand. 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.

The complaint says he approached a woman who was waiting for the restaurant to open and asked her to buy him something. Police said a 24-year-old man was in custody after a 5-year-old boy plummeted three floors Friday.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game as the Gunners finally kept a clean sheet on the road.

Xhaka was confident ahead of the trip to Italy saying: "We have a good result at home, 2-0, but it will not be so easy in Napoli and you see how Liverpool and PSG struggled there".

Napoli faces much less drama down the stretch of the Serie A, as they are 17 points back of league-leading Juventus but also 12 points clear of AS Roma in fifth.

"Our mentality and tactic tomorrow is we play to win".

Javi Gracia said after the game he was unsure why Deeney was sent off but will have been pleased with the effort of his players to remain in the contest.

Emery added "We were working to push the goalkeeper when he wanted to play like he was playing". We can be proud of how we played. "We had more possession, we had decent opportunities to score and we're really disappointed coming off the pitch with nothing from the game".
