Arsenal take one step closer to the Top Four target

Arsenal take one step closer to the Top Four target

Emery's side now have a two-week break from the Premier League as they take on BATE Borisov in the Europa League, but return to domestic action on February 24 when they host Southampton.

It was the sort of result which Arsenal have been on the receiving end of on more than a couple of occasions in recent years but it was Chelsea who lost 6-0 to Manchester City. "We are (getting) closer to the other teams".

BATE have made it past the group phase this time, but it was something of a rocky ride.

He, therefore, vowed to continue to give his best to the club until the last day f the season so that the club can be able to achieve the dream of a Champions League qualification. We have two ways now, one is the Europa League, and to win it is very hard.

Emery didn't mention the second option, despite previously winning the competition three times, perhaps indicating he is confident of his side's capabilities to get the job done in the league. "The important area is the defence because we have the quality in the front line".

Attack: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in contention after recovering from illness that kept him out of Arsenal's win over Huddersfield so I expect he'll be recalled up front.

The club's Spanish manager has said they will keep fighting in their quest to qualify for next season's Champions League, but admitted it will be a "difficult" task for them to do so.

"Yes but we won." started the Spaniard. The Gunners' form on the road in the UEL and their overall approach to the competition is enough to justify that bet.

There's an argument to say you should back No in the Both Teams To Score market at [2.02].

Arsenal reached the first knockout stage by registering five wins and a draw from six matches as well as five consecutive clean sheets, but The Gunners have struggled for consistency since the middle of December.
