BATE got the game's lone score in the 45th minute when Maksim Stasevich delivered a flawless volley off a set-piece to Dragun for a emphatic header over Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.

'There are still 90 minutes to play and I believe that my teammates will make it to the next round'. There is no question it is a red card for Lacazette'. "But it gives chances for another player". "Our big opportunity is next week at home, I trust in our players and in our stadium with our supporters".

"We've made it more hard for ourselves".

Thursday's result was the first ever win for the Belarusian side against Arsenal in European competitions, having not played a competitive match in two months.

Despite Mesut Ozil finding himself left out of the squad once again, the Gunners still fielded a fairly strong side in Belarus, with Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Lucas Torreira and Denis Suarez all making it onto the pitch at various points.

"Every player is OK to play", said Emery, explaining why he stuck with largely the team that beat Huddersfield 2-1 on Saturday.

"Those that were here, we can win with them and we deserved that", Emery said. "We want to score goals and we want to win and we want to put ourselves in a good position for the second leg, but we've made it more hard for ourselves".

"We deserved to win but did not get the result". "It's not for one player or another".

"Today was one of those games where if you play another couple of hours we wouldn't have scored, but there are games like that in football", he added.
