This is definitely going to be an interesting clash, and Villarreal will try all they can to make a mark as they try and secure their spot for the Europe League finals and redeem themselves from the last two consecutive defeats from the league matches.
Under Emery, the Gunners were finalists two years ago but were beaten by London rivals Chelsea and the Spaniard was fired later in the following season.
Arsenal are languishing in tenth place in the Premier League after losing to Everton, and as it stands, the Europa League has long been a offers them, their best hope at salvaging the season by qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
The Gunners, were unplayable in Prague, storming to a 4-0 victory following another poor first leg at home. As they travel to Villarreal, they are enjoying a seven-away games unbeaten streak in all competitions and managed at least three goals in their last four away matches.
Arteta is forced to choose continental glory over a season without European football, missing both Champions and Europa league which will definitely impact them financially. We expect them to have all their guns blazing and make their road to final smooth and easy.
