In a shambolic and near shameful performance at the Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Ostersunds FK in the second leg of their round of 32 tie.

Minutes later, Ospina helped keep Arsenal's momentum by covering up a ricocheted free kick that looked like it was going to be poked in by Ostersund's Ronald Mukiibi.

"Yes, I've been watching many times Arsenal games in the past and of course I was following the team playing in the Premier League and Champions League", Mkhitaryan told ESPN.

After notching up a 3-0 victory in the first leg, Arsenal found themselves staring down the barrel as the inspired Ostersunds attack scored two goals in quick succession at the Emirates yesterday.

Manchester City defender Kyle Walker is desperate to "get one over" on old rivals Arsenal in Sunday's Carabao Cup final.

They will progress to the next round after winning 3-0 in the first leg, but the team were outperformed by their lowly opponents. People subconsciously think you have just to turn up to win and it doesn't work like that.

Atletico are second in La Liga and aren't relying on the Europa League as a path to the Champions League, but the 2010 and 2012 winners are arguably the best team in the competition and will have their sights set on victory. They went to Nottingham Forest [in the FA Cup last month] with exactly the same attitude and lost. "We played against a good side".

Ghoddos' agent, Ferhat Cifici, was in London to watch the game against Arsenal and confirmed there was interest in the player, but he refused to reveal the clubs chasing him.

"We got two out of three of course, but the manner of our performance, the character of the players, the courage of the players, the quality of the football, the intelligence of the play was at a real good level".

"We're through and that's all that counts. Maybe we underestimated them a little bit, but the main thing is we're through". "The only positive is that we are through".

Speaking to Sky Sports, the England worldwide said: "Tottenham is a club which belongs to my heart". We played well, won the game but it was just short of the miracle.
