Napoli 0-1 Arsenal, Laca on target

Europa League, News

We booked our place in the Europa League semi-finals at a canter with a 1-0 victory in Naples last night thanks to an amazing 36th minute free kick from Alexandre Lacazette.

The game, as always, didn’t come without a cost, with the in-form Aaron Ramsey limping off with what looked like a hamstring twang, which could mean he has played his last game in the red and white sleeves of The Arsenal.

Unai Emery confirmed it was a muscle injury and this type of injury is usually 3-4 weeks out, so whether we’ll see him again this season is yet to be seen:

“It is a muscular injury. Normally it will be some weeks out for him…” said the Spaniard after the game.

We now face Emery’s former side Valencia in the semi-final, with Chelsea playing Eintracht Frankfurt in the other, both games taking place on the 2nd and 9th of May, with a potential final on the 29th of May in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Sadly, we won’t be seeing ex-Arsenal player Francis Coquelin back at The Emirates as he was booked in the latter stages of their 5-1 quarter-final win over Villarreal, earning himself a rather predictable suspension.

Following the win, and on the back of our 1-0 win at Watford, we now face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon before the trickiest of our remaining fixtures, a visit to Wolves on Wednesday, a midweek horror show the likely order of the day as we look to secure a top three spot.
