Goals from Mohamed Elneny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Arsenal a much needed win, and a confidence boost ahead of Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg.
The Egyptian fired home from the edge of the box in the 6th minute, and a Martinelli assist in the second half provided the skipper with his first goal since the Burnley game on the 6th of March.
There was also a clean sheet for Mat Ryan, but unfortunately an injury to David Luiz which may well end the Brazilian’s season and undoubtedly puts him out of the Villarreal game.
Here’s how the players rated.
