Arsenal stroll to Europa win

All the goals were scored in the first half, with midfielder Aaron Ramsey and returning striker Alexandre Lacazette netting twice for the Gunners.

Ozil was again the creator when Lacazette also grabbed a double by shooting into the far corner for his first goal from open play in almost three months. If we are able, which I feel we are capable of, to create similar opportunities I would expect us to put them away.

Obviously best case scenario is that he's back for the semi-finals. His lofted pass left Ramsey with much to do, but he conjured a sublime finish, leaping to meet the ball and then, with his back to the goal, flicking it over the head of the Russian keeper.

"We have to do the job over there, go and try to win the game, that's the best way", said Wenger.

"It's how we view it and we have a good group here, a talented bunch and the vast majority of them got to eighth a year ago".

"It's important for me because in the league, Aubameyang is going to play, unless the coach plays the two of us together", added Lacazette.

The Gunners have won the FA Cup in three of the past four seasons but lost 4-2 to Championship side Nottingham Forest in the third round. Wenger said he was getting a little anxious at that point when he was asked how he was feeling.

You won't see Christian Benteke doing that any time soon.

"It's awesome what they have done when you think they were in League One, and the number of players that they have produced over the 10 ten years".

The second half was a sedate affair and the closest either team came to scoring was a shot by Ramsey that hit the post.

He said: "We are focusing on the Premier League and the Europa League with the squad". We did the first part of the job in the second half, but not the second.

"We made key errors in the game which led to goals and we never really recovered from that".

It was a hard game because they looked very good going forward and came out very quickly every time we lost the ball.

Ramsey is the latest in a long line of Arsenal players whose deal has been allowed to dwindle down towards its final few months, with the Welshman contract running out in the summer of 2019.
