Arsenal will discover their quarter-final opponent at tomorrow's draw in Nyon, with Chelsea, Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt the teams Emery will be hoping to avoid.

Nevertheless, Emery said the Champions League, Europe's premier club competition, was not his only focus because the Europa League - which he won three times in a row from 2014 to 2016 as manager of Sevilla - also provides the chance for silverware. "And the last teams, they are all very important, and it's going to be very hard", Emery said.

"And also, it's one title".

"This game was a tricky situation because at 2-0 up, you're through, but they just need one goal".

"We played Manchester United on Sunday and today against Rennes after we were away in the first leg".

"But I think we can feel this competition like in the Premier League, to do a good way and create, with our supporters, a big atmosphere and a big feeling together to do this way in the Premier League and also here in the Europa League".

After scoring Aubameyang donned a Black Panther mask to celebrate, and he explained why afterwards.

Arsenal made the flawless start after Maitland-Niles played the ball into Aaron Ramsey who squared for Aubameyang to slot home from close range to put the Gunners 1-0 ahead after only three minutes.

The second leg was a bad-tempered affair with four yellow cards shown to each side by referee Andris Treimanis.

Rennes, needing only an away goal to take the advantage, looked committed to making a fight of it in the second half and twice hit the post in the first 20 minutes after the break.

"On the offside, it was very clearly an injustice, it was an error", he said.

"There were quite a few things that went against us over the past couple of days".
