  • VALENCIA GOAL! IT’S 1-0! The hosts are right back in this tie now, and could we be in for another comeback? Rodrigo gets away from his marker and slides a great cross into the six-yard box, where four-time Europa League winner Gameiro is on hand to tuck home.

  • GOAL! AUBAMEYANG MAKES IT 1-1! Well, just as it looked as though Arsenal would get overrun, Emery’s side have sprung to life and delivered what could be a hammer blow to Valencia’s hopes. Lacazette sent a lovely cushioned pass through to Aubameyang, and he made no mistake with an unerring first-time finish on the half-volley.

  • The first booking of the game goes Garay’s way, after he scythed down Lacazette. The Argentine is complaining about that decision, but the replays have shown it was a poor tackle.

  • GOOOAAAALLL!! LACAZETTE MAKES IT 2-1 TO ARSENAL! That really could be the tie over now! Valencia’s defence parted in front of Torreira following Gaya’s slack touch. The midfielder quickly picked his head up and found Lacazette who, after controlling it expertly, spun clear of two defenders and slammed home into the bottom-right corner.

  • GOAL! IT’S 2-2! It’s 5-3 on aggregate now, as Gameiro bundles in after initially blocking Wass’ shot. Cech tried his best to get there, but the Frenchman managed to flick it beyond Arsenal’s goalkeeper.

  • GOAL! 3-2 TO ARSENAL! Surely, that’s the game all over now. Maitland-Niles sends in a low cross, and Aubameyang is on hand at the front post to prod in and make it 6-3 on aggregate to the Gunners. Clinical!

  • WHAT A GOAL! AUBAMEYANG GETS HIS HAT-TRICK! That was absolutely sublime from Arsenal! They worked a patient move down the right, Aubameyang exchanging a number of passes with Guendouzi before dummying it for Mkhitaryan, whose throughball is perfectly weighted for the former Borussia Dortmund man to slam home high into the net. It's 4-2 on the night, and 7-3 on aggregate.

  • Unnecessary scenes at the end of the game saw Maitland-Niles clash with some Valencia players, and a fracas builds up on the pitch. The Arsenal youngster has received a booking after the whistle has gone, but he will likely not mind too much.
