They combined for the opening goal on 14 minutes when Shkodran Mustafi's diagonal pass found Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang peeling away and he crossed for a stretching Lacazette to steer a volley past Martin Dubravka.

Arsenal plays Atletico Madrid in the semifinals. "What you want is to help the referee, unfortunately the Premier League has decided not to go for VAR".

Asked about Arsenal's wretched away form, Wenger said: "It's a lot about the head and sometimes there is no rationality in it".

The "WengerOut" brigade have been in loud voice over recent months, and Sunday's defeat at the hands of Newcastle - which leaves Arsenal just two points clear of seventh - has increased the pressure on the Frenchman. "Today we didn't play unbelievable football because we played an wonderful team, but you have to manage how you play and compete for the win". People dreamed we could do this, this season.

I must have just imagined that decade under George Graham, when Arsenal fans proudly sang "1-0 to the Arsenal", as they ground out not entertaining victories, built on that David Seaman, Tony Adams, Lee Dixon etc etc solid defence.

'They have very good players and the style that Pep likes, which is so quick, they have been able to play with that speed and intensity.

"Our attitude today was spot on but I have to be realistic enough to say that maybe our balance offensively and defensively doesn't work".

'I guess that means the top-six. Only four players have scored more Premier League goals without scoring away from home than Ritchie (Georginio Wijnaldum, Clive Wilson, Ronny Johnsen and Jeff Kenna).

Shelvey's long-range passing was the tale of the match at times, with Perez and Gayle often on the receiving end of the Englishman's well-timed distribution, as they caused Arsenal's defence a number of problems all game. They got themselves in front, City struggled to react and then once they were in front with the speed they have.
