Aubameyang Reveals How Far Arsenal Can Go In The Europa League

Victory in the Europa League and a decent Premier League campaign would mark an impressive first season for head coach Unai Emery.

Thankfully we didn't miss the 30-year-old as second half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a 2-0 win to make it four Premier League wins on the bounce and five in all competitions.

Just three minutes later, Aubameyang doubled the hosts lead with a tidy finish, after a blunder from team mate Aaron Ramsey left the ball at the Gabonese's feet from Mesut Ozil's pass across the penalty area.

But Emery was furious that Arsenal switched off in the closing stages to allow minnows Vorskla to score twice. Petr Cech produced an impressive goalkeeping performance amid murmurs that £20m summer signing Bernd Leno could replace him as No.1 soon.

"It is a disappointing result for us".

To put it into further context, they've conceded the same number of league goals as Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City combined to show how far off the required standard they are.

Everton's rotten record away to the top-6 has always been a source of vast frustration, but alarm bells could also be ringing when supporters learn of Silva's shocking record on the road in England.

Emery made eight changes for the Europa League clash as he rested his key players for Everton's visit to the Emirates Stadium. So, when they started to attack more, there were situations where we can create chances by playing from the back.


Each match we play, I am responsible for the group and for Torreira also, today I think it is better [for Lucas] to leave the match.

While Arsenal continue to build under Emery, Marco Silva's start to life at Goodison Park remains a slow one.

Theo Walcott, back at Arsenal for the first time since being sold to Everton in January, also drew a good block from the goalkeeper after being played in for a one-on-one, and Arsenal was arguably fortunate to still be level at halftime. It is a bit frustrating but I keep calm and work very hard to improve.

"VAR would help but I understand they are trying to find the best way to introduce it maybe by next season". Since his Premier League debut on February 3, only Liverpool's Mohamed Salah (16) has scored more goals than Aubameyang's 12.

"It's something we analysed during the week".

"The Premier League is very important because I think it is the first competition of importance for us, because that gives us the big credibility on this season", he added.

Nacho Monreal forced an early save from Jordan Pickford in an error-strewn start, with Cech denying Richarlison on the Brazil international's return from suspension.
