Emery urges Ramsey to make a major impact for Arsenal before leaving

Emery urges Ramsey to make a major impact for Arsenal before leaving

Though neither of them managed to score, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette caused all sorts of problems for Napoli last Thursday.

Arsenal progressed to the final four of the UEFA Europa League with a 3-0 aggregate victory over Napoli.

Tottenham have 67 points, while Arsenal have 66.

Watford though had to play nearly 80 minutes with ten men after captain Troy Deeney was dismissed for an elbow on Lucas Torreira.

Despite seeing his side struggle across the finishing line, Gunners boss Unai Emery said it was a result that will give his side "confidence" ahead of the end of season run-in.

Unai Emery realizes that he can not take risks in this game, as this is Arsenal's more favourable chance to secure Champions League's qualification berth for the next season.

After a 2-0 win at the Emirates last week, Unai Emery's side knew the first goal was always going to be crucial.

"I think we want to stay in the top four - we want to be back in the Champions League", he added. "They'll use all their attacking possibilities against us".

Gunners centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos knows the San Paolo stadium well having played for two seasons in Italy with Genoa. Regarding the clause, the Colombian said "My current situation is that I am on loan for this season and there is a clause based on a certain number of games, where if I play, the transfer will become an automatic purchase". It is not always easy to play away, we have to take the duels, we have to win the duels, and you can see if you do that you can win the game.

Arsenal exorcised some of their away day demons against Watford on Monday night, but their beleaguered defence is set to be tested again against Carlo Ancelotti's free-flowing Napoli side.

"They are very hard teams to battle because defensively they are very strong and this is now at Watford".

But Napoli's hopes of a first Serie A title since 1990 have evaporated as they trail 17 points behind Juventus who need just one more point to wrap up an eighth consecutive Scudetto.
