Forget where we are, make their home our home and we go through. They'll be out of the blocks quickly to get a goal back, which means we exploit the gaps this leaves.

We need to be way more clinical than we've been last 2 league games.

If we score first, this tie is over. Start slow, and then explode around the 10th minute and try to get that G.

We need big games from Xhaka, Mustafi AMN and Leno. This game is all about preventing goals.

Okay guys can someone please confirm we are scheduled to play the first tie of the semi final at home if and when we proceed to the next round..


So that's May 2nd for London and May 9th for the away game?

I'll admit, I'm worried about this one.

The way Napoli poured it on in the last 30mins of the 2nd half is what we have to look forward to from the whistle, however two things might be our saviour.

One, we know they'll attack so hopefully we set up for strong counters although I'd like us to have possession because honestly that's what we're good at.

Two, they can't shoot worth a lick, I mean they skied every opportunity they had on Thursday even right in front of goal.

One goal for us kills the tie, or we tough it out for 90mins and hope they don't get more than one.

We need all of them to stay on the bench.

Unlike at the Emirates, Ancelotti won't leave Milik, Napoli's only natural striker, on the bench at the Stadio San Paolo.

Depends on Chelsea of course. If they get through, they have priority.

I rewatched the draw to make sure.

Chelsea starts with an away game in the semi final, we start at home (if we make it)

So we should be in Spain come May 9th

Flood the midfield, choke their supply line and leave them no room to breathe. Pressed and pressed!

Priority #1. - put three men on Koulibali for Napoli corners and free kicks.

And not Mustafi, Torreira and Mkhitarian.

Ive missed the last few Arsenal games cos of work so haven't been nervous about them.

Will be watching this though so nerves are there.

Concede early and we might as well just forfeit and go home.
