Arsenal boss Emery happy both strikers on scoresheet for Valencia win

Arsenal boss Emery happy both strikers on scoresheet for Valencia win

Valencia also condemned the behaviour in a statement published on Friday and said it would take disciplinary action if those identified were season ticket holders, but claimed their fans may have been provoked by the Arsenal supporters prior to the incident.

But Emery has a special relationship with the Europa League having won it three times in a row with Sevilla and delivering the trophy to Arsenal for the first time now looks their most likely route back into the elite tournament.

Mesut Ozil wants to stay at Arsenal, while Juventus-bound star Aaron Ramsey said he is saddened to have played his last game for the club due to injury.

Arsenal started poorly and conceded inside 15 minutes with a goal from a corner.

Emery, however, has sounded it clear that his side wants to win the Europa League and qualify straight to the Champions League.

Arsenal have lost their last three Premier League games.

However, if they do finish in the top four, then England will not get an extra spot.

On Thursday evening, Alexandre Lacazette had scored a first-half brace to cancel out Mouctar Diakhaby's deserved early opener for the visitors.

He released Aubameyang with a superb pass before arriving in the box to steer a shot past Neto after his fellow striker cleverly held up the ball before squaring it.

Arsenal soon recovered as Alexandre Lacazette got two goals in the space of seven minutes for the Gunners.

The chances continued to come for Arsenal's front two as Aubameyang volleyed into the ground and over just before the break.

At the other end Petr Cech also had to make a smart stop as he raced from his goal to deny substitute Kevin Gameiro.

Valencia, losing semi-finalists in 2012 and 2014, would have been reasonably content heading back to Spain with a one-goal deficit but they switched off in the dying minutes.

Emerick provided the final nail in the coffin in the final minute, smashing home at the far post after Sead Kolasinac's high cross met him at a tough angle.
