Alexandre Lacazette has stressed the importance of securing a positive result in the home leg of our Europa League quarter-final against Napoli.
Back in 2013 we beat the Italian side 2-0 at Emirates Stadium, before losing by the same scoreline at the Stadio San Paolo - and our French striker says we need to make sure we start on the front foot on Thursday night.
"We know we are better at home than we are away, so tomorrow is really important for us," Lacazette said. "We also know we can get a good result away, so both games are going to be important for us.
"Last season we fell just before the final so this time we want to go forward. We have to play well in this game.
"On Sunday we played badly [against Everton], all the team. We didn’t do what the coach asked us but we still have confidence.
"We know we’re still in the race for the Champions League in the Premier League, but we want to win trophies so we are confident."
