Having sealed our place in the last-16 of the Europa League on Thursday night, Unai Emery and his players must swiftly turn their attention back to domestic matters.
Southampton are the visitors on Sunday in the Premier League, and our head coach is expecting another searching examination - having been beaten in the reverse fixture back in December.
"Like all the teams in the Premier League, they are difficult and they will be preparing for this match with big players and also with time and for us it is difficult," Emery said. "We have respect [for them] but we need to impose our gameplan and quality and intensity.
"It is very important to get the three points, we are playing at home with our supporters and I want to carry on stronger here but with a big demand from ourselves to find a victory."
