Arsenal vs Villarreal LIVE!

Arsenal last night saw their season all but end in a whimper as a goalless draw against Villarreal meant they crashed out of the Europa League and miss the chance to take on Manchester United in the Final.

The club is ninth in England's Premier League table and could miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years.

Villarreal held out for a stalemate on a nerve-jangling Thursday night in north London with a 2-1 aggregate victory as former Gunners manager Unai Emery made yet another Final.

The Spanish side protected their first-leg advantage with a disciplined display, riding their luck at times with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang twice hitting the post for the hosts.

Villarreal survived five minutes of stoppage time as Arsenal tried in vain to keep their season alive, celebrating wildly at the end as the club reached their first European final.

As Emery celebrated, his successor Arteta's saw his tactics and team selections questioned, notably why he took off Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with his side needing to score, as pressure on his job mounted.

Relive all the action and keep up with the reaction on our LIVE match blog below...
