  2. 'We haven't been as ruthless in Premier League, but I liked the performance today'

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna


    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta speaking to BT Sport: "First of all, delighted to have fans back they make a huge difference. We had 2000 but they were loud and they were supportive to the team so thanks to them for coming and making the effort. The boys wanted it I could see from the start they wanted it, they were hurt from previous game they showed the attitude and desire that is required. We were aggressive, we wanted to put the ball in the box we created chances. Now we have another one on Sunday."

    On replicating performance in Premier League: "The aggressiveness is always there but the margins in the Premier League are so much smaller, when you make a mistake you pay the price. We haven't been as ruthless in the final third in the Premier League as we have in Europe, but I liked the reaction of the team and the performance today.

    "Many of them I am delighted with, the injured players who been out for so long they worked so hard we are so glad to have them back, to add numbers to the squad. [Alexandre] Lacazaette it was great to have him on the score sheet, some really good individual performances and some of the good from the young boys as well.

    "The club has made such an effort to make sure today everything was set up in the right way so hopefully the fans had a good night, they were tremendous for us."

    On difficulty picking a team against Spurs: "We've seen that a lot of players playing on a Thursday who have strong performances in Europa who then play on the Saturday as well so yes I will be thinking about this performance."

  3. 'It's great to have our 12th man back'

    Ainsley Maitland-Niles

    Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles speaking to BT Sport: "We said before the game we would just have fun and enjoy the game, enjoy the moment and have a good feel for it and we did that and executed it brilliantly.

    "We've waited a long time [to have the fans back], it's a great feeling to have them back. It was only a few thousand tonight but we hope more will come eventually it's just great to have that sound back and have our 12th man back."

    On what he brought to the game: "I had a bit of legs in midfield, got about, tackling, winning the ball back, getting up and down the pitch and being a bit more dynamic."

  4. 'Having the fans really helped us during the game'

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna


    Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette speaking to BT Sport: "It was amazing - we were so happy to see the fans today it really helped us during the game, even in bad moments they pushed us to play good obviously we played well it was good football. We had two players come back from injury [Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers] so we're really happy for them so it was a good night."

    On his goal: "Was really good, really nice when fans are behind us. Was not easy for me this last couple of weeks but to see the fans behind me and the team - I really enjoyed tonight so thanks to them.

    "Tonight we wanted to enjoy it and to get our fifth win in a row which we did and now we have time to focus again for the derby on the weekend. we just need to rest and see what happens at the weekend."

  5. Free-scoring Arsenal (in Europe)

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Arsenal scored 3+ goals in four consecutive European games for the first time since March 2000, on their way to the Uefa Cup final that season.

  6. Mourinho questions motivation of some players

    LASK 3-3 Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, asked what he learnt from his side tonight, said: "Nothing new really. The fact that the Europa League group phase doesn't motivate some of the players, I knew it.

    "That some players are fundamental for us and I always need on the pitch in any circumstance, a couple of these players to give a little bit of balance to the team.

    "As an example, (Pierre-Emile) Hojbjerg and Sonny, without them I don't think we would have a positive result. Nothing really that I learn. The players know and I share my feelings with them, I am normally right.

    "When I saw the warm-up before the game I had a feeling and I told the players before the game that there was a huge difference in intensity, communication and enthusiasm in their warm-up and our warm-up because I was looking at both. Nothing surprises me."

  7. Post update

    As good as Arsenal were tonight, the key question is whether they can take that attacking display into the Premier League. There will be no better time than against Tottenham on Sunday.

    Speaking of Spurs, they were below par tonight and their manager Jose Mourinho wasn't happy...

  8. Rangers reach knockouts

    Rangers 3-2 Standard Liege

    Good news from elsewhere because Rangers have beaten Standard Liege and they are through to the last 32.

    Follow all the reaction here.

  9. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    I didn't clock anyone sneaking off for an early getaway from the stands. Instead they are all sticking around to applaud the players, who are in turn walking around pitch applauding them. Mikel Arteta has joined them too. Great to see.


    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Arsenal celebrate

    All over. A very successful night for Arsenal, who scored four goals and could have had many more.

    The fans in attendance will certainly have been entertained.

  11. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Oh I could easily overhype Emile Smith Rowe, Dom. A really, really exciting player who is destined for a great career if he can stay free of injury.

  12. Get Involved

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only)

    Adam Salter: Arsenal look like scoring every time they come forward. The fact that they haven’t is the only disappointment tonight.

    SMS Message: I'm really glad Emile Smith-Rowe hasn't been overhyped in the way we've seen some youngsters over the years. Hopefully he can keep growing and flourish before he's ready to step into the spotlight for real from Dom in Cornwall

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Willian has a go from distance but the shot skips just wide of the far post. Worth a go.

    The 90 minutes are up and there will be three minutes of added time.

  14. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Arsenal have had 12 corners tonight with four of them coming in pretty much the last four minutes. They are pinging balls into the box for fun at the moment.

  15. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Four minutes remaining but there's no let up from Arsenal, which is good to see. They win a succession of corners before Pablo Mari loops a header into Richard Strebinger's hands.

  16. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Willians corner goes right through the area but no-one in a blue shirt is able to turn in. Arsenal pick the ball up again and Pablo Marí tries his luck for a second of the game but this time fires wide.

  17. Post update

    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Ainsley Maitland-Niles plays an inviting ball across the face of goal but Mateo Barac is there to stab behind with Cedric waiting to pounce.


    Arsenal 4-1 Rapid Vienna

    Richard Strebinger denies Arsenal a fifth as he pushes over a well-hit Dani Ceballos free-kick.

    Another change for Arsenal as Folarin Balogun comes on for Eddie Nketiah for the final 10 minutes.
