The Gunners are more than ten points adrift Tottenham who sit fourth in the Premier League table, so the Nort Londoners need to win the Europa League if they are to play in the Champions League next season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring with a controversial penalty as Bruno Martins Indi was adjudged to have fouled Mesut Ozil, only for replays to show he won the ball.

Following victory in an encounter that was far from straight-forward for Arsene Wenger's men, Lacazette provided yet more evidence that it was far from a walk in the park for him either.

'Welcome back Laca, ' he wrote, as he reflected on his performance after a six-month absence.

Aubameyang would add a lovely second 11 minutes later, before substitute Alexandre Lacazette's penalty after a barge by Badou Ndiaye in the box gave the scoreline a gloss that had not looked likely at half-time when Arsenal were booed off.

Aubameyang revealed he passed up the opportunity to score a maiden Arsenal hat-trick - he had scored two for Borussia Dortmund this season before his January transfer - because he wanted to help Lacazette. Aubameyang later explained the reason for giving away the penalty and how the penalty would be "good for his confidence", as Lacazette had just returned from an injury.

And this would be only the eighth time since that same year, 1998, that the final did not feature at least one of those sisters. Stephens kept surviving deep baseline challenges from her opponent, and Ostapenko kept wilting with unforced errors .

"They've been a terrific football club in Europe as well and I still think they're a really top side with some really top players".

The Scot argued that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system - not yet used in the Premier League - would have seen the original decision overturned had it been in operation.

"We bring it over here and it seems to be confusing".

"He's not given me the (selection) problem and he knows that", said Lambert.

Arsenal took some time to get going and did not threaten the Stoke goal until the midway point of the first half. "Now we can move on and build for the next games, let's keep fighting". But then two goals by Ali in the space of four minutes meant the Blues would suffer a loss to their North London rivals for the first time since 1990. "I don't have any question about the way he is as a goalscorer but there's more to the game than just that".
