Having been eliminated at the semi-final stage of the Europa League at the hands of former manager Unai Emery on Thursday evening, Arsenal know they need maximum points from their remaining games to have any chance of returning to the competition again next season. Losing to Villareal over the two legs will be a bitter pill to swallow for Mikel Arteta who no doubt threw all his eggs into one basket knowing that their 9th place position in the Premier league looks continually ominous. 

The Gunners have at least welcomed back club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng after illness just in time to replace the injured Alexandre Laccazette who has hit some form in the absence of the Arsenal talisman.
