Arsenal's two goal Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang produced his spider mask during their Europa League triumph over Rennes.

"The 3-1 loss away put us in a very hard situation, but we knew how to deal with that and we got what we deserved".

Arsenal have missed out on Champions League football for the last two seasons, and their poor away record remains a big concerns.

The celebration coincides with the release of the Black Panther-less Avengers: Endgame trailer - if you want to know why he's not in it, go see Infinity War - and it also honors Aubameyang's bloodlines.

"I needed the mask to represent me", Aubameyang said to BT Sport after his sixth brace of the season in all competitions.

Arsenal got off to a brilliant start thanks to superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who scored in the fifth minute to put Arsenal in the driver's seat.

"It's a Black Panther and in Africa, in Gabon we call the national team the panthers of Gabon".

In the past the striker has worn Batman and Spiderman masks to toast goals - but he explained why this time was a special moment.

Unai Emery will have Alexandre Lacazette available, after UEFA reduced his three-match ban.

We doubled our advantage just 10 minutes later when Aubameyang combined with Ramsey before crossing for Ainsley Maitland-Niles to head home at the far post for 2-0 in the 15th minute.

"That goal changed a lot of things. There's a long way to go but with performances like that, we can compete".
