West Ham United v Arsenal - Premier League

Arsenal have crashed out of the Europa League following a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Olympiacos in the second-leg of the last-32 at The Emirates last night.

The Gunners won 1-0 in the first-leg but Pape Abou Cisse’s 53rd-minute goal for the Greek side forced the game into extra-time.

Arsenal thought they had booked a place in the last-16 after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s bicycle-kick drew them level and put them 2-1 up on aggregate seven minutes from time.

However, Olympiacos left it late to break their hearts, with Youssef El Arabi’s 120th-minute winner ensuring the visitors went through on the away-goal rule.

Aubameyang missed a huge chance to draw Arsenal level once again a few seconds later, and the Gabonese was left distraught after the final whistle.

Gunners legend Ian Wright and Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker have both reacted thus to the defeat on Instagram and Twitter respectively:
