Martin Keown slams Arsenal following shock Europa League loss

Martin Keown slams Arsenal following shock Europa League loss

Arsenal scraped past Swedish minnows Ostersunds in the second leg of their last-32 tie Thursday, losing 2-1 on the night but advancing with a 4-2 aggregate win after their 3-0 first leg triumph.

The only difference this time is that it could be the Europa League not the Champions League.

Following the draw, Arsenal are [6.2] second favourites behind Atletico Madrid to win the competition.

With competition for places in the top four of the Premier League tighter than ever, and the Gunners now sixth and eight points off the pace, Wenger knows that winning the Europa League is probably Arsenal's most likely route to qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Wenger said: "The fact that we won the first leg 3-0, the fact that we have another big game on Sunday and the fact that people subconsciously thought that they just have to turn up to win the game".

Milan destroyed Arsenal at the San Siro 4-0, but it was a spirited 3-0 fightback at the Emirates that almost completed the comeback. This looks like being Arsenal's only way back into the top-tier of European football and will pick strong sides to face Milan in these two fixtures.

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.

Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, is cup tied in the Europa League having played for Dortmund in their failed Champions League campaign this pre-Christmas.

AC Milan knocked four past Arsene Wenger's side at the San Siro thanks to goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Kevin Prince Boateng, as Clarence Seedorf lead his team to victory.

Against Lokomotiv, they should have little trouble reaching the final eight.
