He set up Ainsley Maitland-Niles for the second ten minutes later to put the Gunners ahead on away goals.

As the competition reaches the latter stages his players are going to have to step it up a gear if they are to win him a record fourth Europa League trophy.

ARSENAL (3-4-1-2): Cech, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Ramsey (Torreira 87), Kolasinac; Ozil (Mkhitaryan 69); Lacazette (Iwobi 69), Aubameyang.

For their part, Rennes grew into the match a little more following a sluggish start and tested Petr Cech before half time through a long-range strike from Hatem Ben Arfa.

Yes, that's right, after utilising the masks of Spiderman and Batman for so long, the 29-year-old swapped those has-beens for a more modern hero - Black Panther.

After 15 minutes of the second leg, it seemed as though Arsenal were going to cruise into the quarter-finals.

Gabon worldwide Aubameyang is more used to featuring in the Champions League than Europe's second-tier competition, but his early impact with a goal and an assist was decisive for the Gunners.

And that is largely down to the brilliance of Aubameyang - who scored a brace and made an assist to help his side through to the next round.

Aubameyang missed two big chances inside a minute to complete his first hat-trick in Arsenal colours, poking wide of the post with just Koubek to beat and then skewing wide of the same post once teed up by Ramsey in front of goal. Having been linked with a move to Arsenal at the end of this season, Sarr did not seize his opportunity to shine, with a hopeful shot in the sixth minute of added time his only notable contribution. And Emery, as the resident Europa League specialist (a mantle he'd probably rather pass on now he's left Sevilla), duly delivered. The late goal was the forward's second of the night, and it all but sealed Arsenal's place in the Europa League quarterfinals.
