Arsenal need to turn around a 2-0 deficit against Rennes in the last 16 of the Europa League

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has revealed Jesse Lingard's extravagant goal celebrations at the Gunners' expense inspired their revenge victory over Manchester United.

Lucas Torreira, the Arsenal midfielder, said Lacazette's return would make them even more risky for Rennes, who struggled against Emery's team in the first leg until Sokratis Papastathopoulos was shown a red card a few minutes before half-time.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Arsenal hand Manchester United their first Premier League defeat since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solakjaer in December 2018.

Arsenal on Tuesday confirmed that they would be travelling to Dubai for a training camp during the break, where they will play a match to mark the opening of their new stadium, the Al Maktoum Stadium.

Lingard, who missed the clash through injury, had previously scored twice in the same fixture last season and his Instagram jibe really got under the skin of the Arsenal players and fans alike.

Mesut Ozil appeared to reference Lingard in a post-match tweet on Sunday evening which read: "Dancefloor huh?!" Superb performance! Brilliant result!'

The governing body, however, upheld an appeal 48 hours before the game, reducing the sanction to two matches, which means the Frenchman is available for the Thursday night clash at the Emirates Stadium. "Proud to be a Gunner!" 'But no worries. We are happy because the most important thing is the three points.

"In your mind you will never forget something like that, when somebody is celebrating", Leno said.

"The plan was to stay compact, close to each other, and wait for the mistake of Chelsea, then when we've got the ball, try to keep it and do something", he added. There are still eight games and we want to win every game. "Tomorrow I am thinking not only of the first 11, because I think we are going to need different situations, maybe different systems and maybe different players", he said.

Though the win against United certainly hasn't harmed their top four aspirations, Arsenal have four points from their last five away games in the Premier League and still have to face Wolves, Everton, Watford, Leicester and Burnley on the road. ' United skipper Ashley Young insists the fight to finish in the top four will go to the final day of the campaign.

'But I think there are so many points to pick up, so many games left.
