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 win for Arsenal confirmed that six English teams will compete in the quarter-finals across the Europa League and Champions League. This comeback was very hard but I think our reaction is very good.

"After, I want to take to take better control with the ball and with possession".

'We were confident. We knew after the first leg even if we lost, if we played our game we could win and go to the next round'.

Unai Emery has exceeded all expectations in his debut season at Arsenal, says John Hartson, with few tipping Arsene Wenger's successor to make such an immediate impression. "Our match was competitive, we did well today".

Liverpool drawn against Porto in European Cup Quarter Final
You can watch all the Champions League action exclusively live on BT Sport and across our digital platforms. Liverpool have since learned that they will play Porto over two legs in the next stage of the competition.

Prior to the Gunners' victory, Chelsea completed their progression to the last eight of this season's Europa League, which was done in style with a convincing 5-0 thrashing of Dynamo Kyiv.

Emery led Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League titles but the Spaniard is unsure whether Arsenal can be considered favourites to lift the trophy in Baku in May.

'It's really important, obviously it's always very hard when you lose the first game, ' he replied when asked how key a positive result will be in the first leg next time round. Champions League is very important but the Europa League grew up a lot and now is giving every team the possibility to play in the Champions League.

Gabon worldwide Aubameyang is more used to featuring in the Champions League than Europe's second-tier competition, but his early impact with a goal and an assist was decisive for the Gunners. I said to the players today, I am excited about this competition.

With domestic football about to shut down for the global break, Arsenal are not due to be in action again until playing host to Newcastle on April 1.
