However, another incident of racism in British and European football marred the match after a clip emerged in which a fan inside the stadium can be heard shouting abuse at Napoli defender Koulibaly.

Unai Emery is hopeful that Arsenal duo Granit Xhaka and Laurent Koscielny will be fit to face Napoli in the Europa League quarter-finals tonight, according to James Olley of the Evening Standard.

Elsewhere during Thursday's Europa League fixtures, Chelsea identified three fans shown in footage calling Liverpool's Egypt forward Mohamed Salah "a bomber" and barred them from entering the club's fixture at Slavia Prague.

"I had the same problem here against Tottenham".

"We suffered a lot - they're a very good team and we had to dig in tonight. Hopefully we will find a way to kick it out".
