    SMS Message: Really pleased for Pepe tonight. Some Arsenal 'fans' have been on his back since September. Remember how long it took Bergkamp to settle into England? Forget about the price tag and give the guy a chance! from Gareth, Bristol

  3. 'We showed good spirit'

    Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria Guimaraes

    Arsenal

    Arsenal manger Unai Emery to BT Sport: "Our aim in this competition is to top the group. Each match is a chance to use different players and grow experience and little by little get better. We didn't play like we wanted but we showed good spirit. It's a good victory.

    "We have more information for the away game and for different players it was good to play tonight.

    "Some players need experience and playing sometimes under pressure at this level and the first half we didn't play or control the match as we wanted and we were losing so with the substitutions we wanted to take control and impose more. We didn't play offensively like we wanted but again the players showed good spirit to come back after the first half.

    "It's important for Pepe. He can gain confidence from tonight. When he scores it's good for him and the team. He's getting better, playing minutes, playing matches and scoring goals like tonight and he helped us tonight to win this match."

    SMS Message: Superb from Pepe, you also have to thank Guendouzi for his driving run that drew the foul. Fantastic footballer and has grown so much in the last year! Probably one of the first names on the team sheet now from Anin

    Agree, Matteo Guendouzi is excellent.

    Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria Guimaraes

    Arsenal have won seven straight home games in Europe (excluding qualifiers) for the first time since February 2002.

  7. 'It shows we've got fight and desire'

    Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria Guimaraes

    Arsenal

    Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney to BT Sport: "It showed the other side of our game. The Standard Liege game was different, we scored four goals and it was comfortable. It shows we've got fight and desire.

    "When teams come here the pressure is on us, so it gives them more freedom, the expectation is on us, but we got the three points and that's the main thing.

    "When you come [to a new side] you don't want to be injured, but everyone has been magic with me. The manager, the coaches and the other players.

    "I've came a long way, I'm delighted to be back fit but I've still got a way to come. I'm developing as player and as a person."

  8. Post update

    British teams averaged 2.78 points per game in Europe this week - all seven English teams and Celtic won, while Rangers drew.

  9. 'We were resilient'

    Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria Guimaraes

    Arsenal

    Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin to BT Sport: "It's a great result for us, especially the way the game went. We went from very good wins at the Emirates with lots of goals. We wanted to replicate that but sometimes games are different.

    "They are a good team, with good players up top but it's the response. It can be the whole team together or individual players and that's what it was today.

    "People thought it was going to be very easy because they'd lost two games, but we knew it wouldn't be like that, we knew it would be hard. We were resilient, we had more chances than just the goals at the end. The team kept believing and we turned it around at the end.

    "There's lots of things we've got to improve as a team. We've got to keep the ball better, that's our trademark, when you give the ball away it doesn't mean you stop playing like that, it's in our DNA. You need to keep pushing and doing what you believe in."

    SMS Message: Let's just hope this game improves Pepe's confidence and he starts scoring in the EPL! from Anish

    Jon Spurling: Great night for Pepe who will hopefully now go from strength to strength, but the most relieved person in the ground will be Emery - just my feeling that victory was in spite of him, not because of him...

    Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria Guimaraes

    What a cameo that was from Nicolas Pepe. He had 16 touches - including two free-kick goals, and a couple of chances he set up for team-mates.

    The difference between the teams. Proper match-winner.

    Damian Fogarty: Football is so often a game of confidence as this performance by Arsenal shows. Different teams before & after scoring the last goal. Mind you it doesn’t last long!

    The final whistle goes seconds later and Arsenal make it seven wins from seven games for English sides in Europe this week.

  19. GOAL - Arsenal 3-2 Vitoria Guimaraes

    Nicolas Pepe

    It's another brilliant Nicolas Pepe free-kick and surely Arsenal have won this game!

    Matteo Guendouzi runs over the ball - nobody was buying that - and Pepe steps up and just curls it into the top corner. The keeper stood no chance.
