Arsenal face Villarreal this evening in the first leg of the clubs’ semi-final clash in the Europa League.

Mikel Arteta is out to add to his first trophy as Arsenal manager – last season’s FA Cup – but he will have to get past predecessor Unai Emery to take a step closer to that goal.

Emery guided Villarreal on a 19-match undefeated streak after joining the club – a record for the La Liga side – and has them two legs away from a Europa League final against either Manchester United or Roma.
