  1. Injury updates...

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has just revealed keeper David Ospina will be out for two or three weeks and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss Sunday's game with Southampton.

    I'll leave you with that news. Check out our match report of the game here.


  2. 'Try to win in Russia'

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    More from Arsene Wenger to BT Sport...

    On taking off Lacazette: "He didn't want to come off. He didn't look fatigued, but Danny Welbeck can get us a goal, and there was no need to take a gamble."

    Mkhitaryan's condition: "Henrikh has a problem with his knee problem, we will assess it in the morning. They said there is nothing they can tell me now."

    Is the tie over?: "We have to be realistic, he have to do the job over there, go and try to win the game, that's the best way."

  3. 'Both teams gave everything'

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow


    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger speaking to BT Sport...

    On his side's performance: "I think we have done half of a job, there was a good pace in the first half, the two teams gave everything which is why is was such a spectacular first half. Second half the aim was not to concede, we did that and also had loads of opportunities that we didn't take."

    Disappointed not to score more?: "You know how football is, you want to make the difference as big as possible, but at 1-1 we would have taken 4-1."

    On Aaron Ramsey's second goal: "It was a great goal, I have seen some great goals recently, and they matter at this point of the season. Ramsey was at the end of many things tonight, got two, and one special one."

  4. Elsewhere in Europe...

    Lazio beat Red Bull Salzburg 4-2. That ends the Austrian side's 19-game unbeaten run in Europe - and 36-match streak in all competitions.

    Salzburg will need to need by two or more at home to keep alive the 'dream' of an all-Red Bull final!

    RB Leipzig beat Marseille 1-0.

    Craig Smith: I'm glad I get to watch him here at the Emirates but can't help but feel sorry for Ozil. He is on a different level. Belongs in the Champions League.

  6. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown reckons on BT Sport that Arsene Wenger will keep his job if they win the Europa League. Fair?

  7. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Aaron Ramsey has scored six goals in his last seven games, as many as in his previous 36 appearances for the Gunners.

  8. 'I would have scored three on another day'

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow


    Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey speaking to BT Sport..

    Is the tie over?: "I don't know. We knew the home leg would be important, we had to score goals, thankfully we did that. We know it will be difficult in Russia, but we have put ourselves in a good position."

    One scoring twice: "I like to make those late runs into the box, I had plenty of opportunities but I am glad I was able to contribute to the team, on another day I might have got a third."

    On his second goal: "I saw the keeper coming, so knew if I got it over him I had a good chance of scoring, thankfully I did.

    "We've managed to score quite a few goals lately, hopefully that will continue until the end of the season."

    Apprehensive about playing in Russia?: "No, of course not. We are going for a game of football. We're looking forward to the rest of the season, hopefully we can finish off strongly."

  9. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Arsenal have now scored three or more goals in four consecutive games. The last time they achieved this was back in January 2011.

  10. 'I'm back, everything is good'

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow


    Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette speaking to BT Sport..

    On their performance: "It was a good game, even though we conceded, I am happy. I am back, so everything is good. I wanted a hat-trick like Aaron (Ramsey), but it's fine, I'm happy."

    Is the tie over?: "Job done for today, but we also have an important game on Sunday that we need to focus on, before we think about the second leg."


    Atletico Madrid 2-0 Sporting Lisbon

    A dominant display from Europa League favourites Atletico Madrid, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Koke and Antoine Griezmann.

    However I'm sure one or two Atleti fans won't be able to shake the feeling their team should have ended the tie, with Sporting well off the pace tonight.

    A glimmer of hope remains for the Portuguese side in the second leg.

  12. Running the show...

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

  13. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Definitely didn't think that was going to end 4-1 at half-time. Aaron Ramsey went so close to a hat-trick when he hit the post.

    Mesut Ozil was utterly brilliant throughout the game. A true joy to watch today.


    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Job practically done for Arsenal. All they need to do to reach the Europa League semi-finals is avoid a three-goal defeat in Moscow next Thursday.

    They could have won this 7-2 really.

  15. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Mesut Ozil crosses the ball into keeper Igor Akinfeev's arms. The first cross which hasn't found a man I'd say.

    David: Both Monreal & Ramsey are so underrated at Arsenal. Both have been shining lights in dark times, especially Nacho.

    Gregory: Had Aubemayang been allowed to play, the score line could have been in double digits.


    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Three minutes added on.

  18. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    CSKA have a chance to pull another back as Pontus Wernbloom spins his defender but then shoots wide from 20 yards.

    I guess if they did score again, a 2-0 win in Moscow to qualify isn't impossible.

  19. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi goes for a run into the opposition area (for some unknown reason), but overruns the ball and his cross doesn't cause any danger.

    A proper Gerard Pique moment there from the German.

  20. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 CSKA Moscow

    Aaron Ramsey probably isn't going to get a hat-trick - but it's not for a lack of trying. His latest effort bobbles just wide of the far post.
