Gabon's Aubameyang strikes twice as Arsenal win Europa League tie (4-2)

Unai Emery has said he has a two-step plan for improving Arsenal's leaky defence, but admitted the lack of clean sheets is his main "disappointment" as Gunners boss so far.

The England global also said that he would be more than happy to celebrate a goal against the Gunners if he manages to get on the scoresheet at The Emirates on Sunday.

"But not only for the defensive players but for the whole team, the whole 11". Second, working tactically to be more compact. Some players choose not to and that's fine, but it's just who I am - celebrate scoring goals, it's a great feeling.

"It is one title and I think for us, every title is the best way, the best performance, the best future".

Arsenal have struggled to challenge for the Premier League title in recent years because of a lack of self-belief under Arsene Wenger, according to former Gunners star Santi Cazorla. "Everyone knows Theo Walcott needs a lot of chances to find the back of the net and it's a question of whether he suits the style at Everton, which he and his team-mates are still adapting to under Marco Silva".

"I think it's a club that can improve quite a few things", Cazorla said. "I am going to work with them, with Lacazette, with Aubameyang, with Danny [Welbeck], and give them my confidence".

They lost their opening two Premier League games to Chelsea FC and Manchester City before bouncing back with three straight wins in the top flight. "We need to impose ourselves on the game". "But I am going to think that the first 60 minutes were very good and that we are going to continue impressing with those ideas".

Everton will head to Arsenal looking to take some points from the game, and Emery has warned his players that they can ill afford to underestimate the threat posed by the visitors.

A familiar face will be hoping to haunt Unai Emery's side in that contest, with a proven Premier League performer having already contributed two goals and an assist to the Toffees cause this season.

Because I had some good performances, but then just didn't get the chance to play on.
