Arsenal to investigate racist abuse of Napoli's Koulibaly

As quoted by the Express, Emery said: "I want to enjoy this moment with him".

Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti has said his side must be bolder to be able to reverse the 2-0 defeat they suffered at Arsenal in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final. When it's tough and you win games, you are really satisfied after the game.

"I had the same problem here against Tottenham".

Following Ramsey's 14th-minute opener for Arsenal, Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly scored an own goal as the home side moved 2-0 ahead 11 minutes later. "Their performances at home are usually very strong this season".

Aubameyang believes the trip to the San Paolo Stadium for the second leg is the flawless place to prove Arsenal are capable of winning big games on the road.

"We pushed a lot at the end and we were physically a lot better as some of their players had cramps".

"I think we had a lot of chances to score more goals, but we didn't concede and that is a good point, that's really important".

"We know it's going to be very hard there", he added.

The Gunners pressed forward repeatedly as the half wore on, but were unable to capitalise despite repeated shots on goal from strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while Napoli had Meret to thank for numerous saves. We have to improve that.

He added: "We know the first leg today was very important for us to take a good result and a good feeling, also with our supporters and with this competition. Our objective now is to continue being competitive like we are here, away with our game play for the next matches".
