Arsenal v Napoli: The Brief

Our Europa League campaign gets back underway on Thursday with a clash that Unai Emery admits is a genuine 50/50 - and one that will test us to the full.

After the disappointment of Sunday's result and performance at Everton, the pressure is on to deliver a significantly improved display against Napoli at Emirates Stadium.

Carlo Ancelotti's side are second in Serie A and blessed with a host of top-class players, from Kalidou Koulibaly at the back, through to Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and Arkadiusz Milik up front.

But with our top-four hopes having taken a blow at Goodison Park, a victory against the Italians would help keep a second front open in the race for Champions League football next season.

Ten Premier League wins in a row at Emirates Stadium should give us cause for optimism, but it will be far from straightforward against a Napoli team that pushed Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain hard in the group stage of the Champions League.

Read on for our comprehensive preview, including Emery's thoughts on the game, the latest team news, stats, and analysis of the opposition.
