Mkhitaryan: We must win Europa League to qualify for Champions League

Mkhitaryan: We must win Europa League to qualify for Champions League

CSKA, particularly Ahmed Musa, did manage to challenge Arsenal at the other end of the pitch a few times, but they weren't able to add to their score. Lacazette is back and will surely start in place of Welbeck and Mkhitaryan, Ozil and Wilshere will surely be on duty in the midfield, in an attempt to put the Russian side to the sword.

The striker had been going through a hard time in England following a promising start to the season where he scored four goals in six league appearances, but went eight games without scoring from December to January.

Aleksandr Golovin curled home a wonderful free-kick after haphazard defending from Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny to level six minutes later.

He could be one of the shining lights for the host country at this summer's World Cup, but here he flickered briefly as Wenger's side went on to take full control.

Yankees Sweep Two-Game Set with Rays Behind Offensive Rout
Giancarlo Stanton turned on a high slider from Blake Snell , and the cracking sound in Yankee Stadium was exceptional. NY improved to 3-2 under Boone, who took over when Joe Girardi was sacked after a decade in charge.

Akinfeev still has some years in him aged at just 31, but the Berezutsky twins are each 35 while Ignashevich is 38. Ozil floated a ball over the CSKA defence to a leaping Ramsey who volleyed it past goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev from eight meters with the heel of his right boot.

Arsenal had several chances to extend its lead in the second half and Ramsey went close to his second career hat trick when he struck the post in the 78th minute.

CSKA were wasteful all evening and had a goal chalked out for offside as Alan Dzagoev headed in after Cech blocked Pontus Wernbloom's shot.

Seluk told Iz: "The Europa League remains, in fact, the only tournament in which Arsenal can win something". Yet it's Ozil and Mkhitaryan who may well make the difference and both will need to impose themselves in the first leg of the quarter-final.

"When you play away from home, you have the same advantage".

Arsenal's last game was a 3-0 win over Stoke City in the Premier League.

The classy playmaker has contributed two goals and five assists so far, with there the promise of plenty more to come from a proven performer.
