Arsenal scored a crucial away goal in El Madrigal on Thursday night in the Europa League against Villarreal.
The Gunners lost 2-1 against the Yellow Submarines in the Europa League semi-final, but Nicolas Pepe’s second-half penalty gave Mikel Arteta’s side renewed hope of reaching the final of the competition.
Both sides finished with 10-men. Dani Ceballo was sent off in the 53rd minute, but Pepe fired home from the spot after Bukayo Saka had been tripped in the box.
Many Tottenham fans took to Twitter to express their reaction to Juan Foyth’s performance, who was outstanding on the night.
Foyth, who joined Villarreal on loan from Tottenham, has been brilliant this season under Unai Emery. He was superb against Arsenal and earned rave reviews from fans and pundits.
At the end of the day no-one can live with the blistering speed and dribbling of Juan Foyth

Foyth was deemed surplus to requirements at Spurs by Jose Mourinho and was sent on loan to the La Liga club.
However, many Spurs fans feel that the 23-year-old defender can still play a crucial role for the club, with Mourinho now out of the picture.
Here are some of the selected tweets from Spurs fans:
I love Foyth, what a run to draw in a foul. Lucas would be proud 🤩

Foyth would be incredible under Erik ten Hag.
Fits his style perfectly and reminds me a bit of Lisandro Martinez. Very versatile and could even play in midfield
Jose has blood on his hands if he ends up going to Villarreal, one mistake against Norwich and he was gone. pic.twitter.com/9HPnEJQ16f

Juan Foyth 😳
Wow! What a first half performance from him. He has been excellent. I can’t see him coming back to Spurs from loan. When your enjoying your football and given the opportunity to play it does so much for a players confidence. He is flying by Ceballos 😂 #THFC

Villarreal are keen to keep Foyth with them, and they are reportedly in talks with Spurs to sign him permanently.
