After Bacary Sagna's late withdrawal with flu, Emmanuel Eboue stepped in at right-back for Arsenal's Quarter-Final second leg clash against Villarreal.

Despite spending much of the season further forward, the Ivorian slotted effortlessly back into the defence as Arsenal maintained their superb European defensive record.

After the game, Emmanuel caught up with Arsenal TV Online where he discussed:

  • safely reaching the Semi-Final
  • replacing Bacary Sagna late on
  • adapting to his old position at right back
  • keeping a clean sheet despite all the injuries
  • the form of Man United and Arsenal going into the Semi-Final
  • how the spirit is pulling Arsenal through at the moment
  • winning more than one trophy
