Arsenal goalscorer Ramsey on Napoli win

Aubameyang-Lacazette

Arsenal scored a second in the 25th minute, Torreira turning into space outside the Napoli box and seeing his drive take a decisive deflection off Koulibaly. Unai Emery's side have won just twice away from home since November and those victories came against Huddersfield Town in the Premier League and Blackpool in the FA Cup.

Arsenal couldn't add to the lead after the break, but they had done enough to put themselves in pole position ahead of the second leg in Naples on April 18.

"Totally confident", the Italian said to BT Sport of Napoli's chances.

"It's going to be a very good game tomorrow and away between us because we have two teams of very good players". This was an uncharacteristic Napoli performance, they only really got going in the second half and they will look to turn the result around on home turf in the next leg. We have to try, we have 90 minutes again and we will do everything to try to move on.

The Welshman played a role in a free-flowing move early in the first half to slot home past Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret as he first-pumped the home support inside a packed-out Emirates Stadium.

"The goals we conceded were two mistakes".

According to Opta, since the start of last season, Ramsey has been directly involved in eight goals in the Europa League (six goals, two assists), which is more than any other Arsenal player.

Trump said he wasn't aware of how senators feel about Cain. "As to how he's doing in the process that I don't know... That's what he would be facing going into the process".

"We could score one goal, but they put a lot of pressure and were risky".

Arsenal will head to Napoli next week firmly in the driving seat, having beaten the Partenopei 2-0 at the Emirates on Thursday night.

Serie A side Napoli struggled to impose themselves on the contest, although Lorenzo Insigne and Piotr Zielinski had big opportunities, and Carlo Ancelotti's men have work to do in next week's return.

Arsenal remained risky and it took a good save from Meret to deny Ramsey before Maitland-Niles was also frustrated by the over-worked Napoli keeper.

"We suffered some times, they can control with possession and created some chances, but we work well in this moment in the season and finished the match.

Our objective now is to continue being competitive like we are here, away with our gameplay for the next matches". "We need to be focused, clear and not more confident than we need [to be] to respect them".
