Arsenal have one foot in the Europa League semi-finals after thumping CSKA Moscow 4-1 on Thursday night.

Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette scored two each in the first-half to give Arsene Wenger’s side a comfortable first leg victory.

In truth, the Gunners should have added to their four in the second period, but let their wasteful finishing spared their Russian opponents from embarrassment.

Ramsey’s side-foot finish set Wenger’s men on their way after just 9 minutes played.

The game looked on when Aleksandr Golovin levelled with a sublime free-kick. However, France ace Lacazette, who has recovered from a knee injury, made it 2-1 with a penalty after Mesut Ozil was brought down by Georgi Schennikov.

Ramsey produced a brilliant third with an instinctive volleyed flick, with Lacazette adding a fourth after being picked out by the outstanding Ozil.

Gooners, who stood out for you on Thursday night? Let us know in the comments…
