The first leg is set to take place at the Emirates on April 11, and Kolasinac has insisted that the Gunners must avoid another damaging defeat.

Arsenal or Napoli will meet Villarreal or Valencia in the semi-finals while Benfica or Eintracht play Slavia or Chelsea.

After celebrating his second goal in Arsenal's 3-0 win in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night by putting on a special mask, African superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang explained the reason for his new celebration.

The win followed Sunday's 2-0 win over Manchester United, which lifted the Gunners back into the Premier League's top four as they seek a return to the Champions League next season, with Unai Emery admitting that it has been a tough week.

Mertens is excited to take on the Gunners in the last eight and insisted if Napoli can not beat sides such as Arsenal then they do not deserve to win the Europa League at the end of the season.

Legendary Arsenal striker Ian Wright has claimed his former side have all the momentum they need to complete an excellent first campaign for Unai Emery. We're going to think the same before every match.

While Napoli are 18 points off Juventus at the summit of Serie A and have not been able to challenge the Bianconeri like they did last season, Carlo Ancelotti has attempted to nurture an evolution of "Sarriball" since he took over at the club.

Arsene Wenger praised Carlo Ancelotti, but warned "it'll be a very hard task for Napoli to get past Arsenal" in the Europa League.

"A hard week for us, but we showed good character and determination to reach the #UEL quarters!" "I missed two chances to close the game but, okay, most important we won today and we are all happy and proud", he added.

"But Arsenal are a great team and for Napoli, it will be a very hard task to knock them out".

Arsenal discovered that they will face Napoli in the quarter finals of the Europa League this morning. In 2014, he donned a Batman mask along with teammate Marco Reus, while playing for Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich in a Super Cup match.
