Here’s all the news from around the Emirates Stadium over the past 24 hours.
Nightmare Europa League draw
The Gunners just about managed to advance in the competition after a dramatic 3-2 victory in Athens was enough to send them through 4-3 on aggregate.
And the draw for the last-16 of the Europa League was conducted in Nyon on Friday lunchtime and the Gunners were handed a clash with Olympiacos for the second season in succession.
This tie will bring back bad memories for the north London outfit as they crashed out of the competition at the hands of the Greek outfit at the round of 32 stage last season.
Unsurprisingly, a number of fans have demanded the players gain a measure of revenge over Olympiacos.
A tidy sum
Arsenal secured another €1,100,000 (£950,000) following qualification to the last 16 of the Europa League.
While the Gunners cannot benefit from a full capacity Emirates Stadium for European nights, a good run in the competition still provides a welcome financial boost.
UEFA has based its prize money distribution on revenues of €500.8m (£434m) and no announced changes have been made so far.
Qualification for the group stage brings an automatic payout of €2.92m (£2.53m). Each victory at the group stage brings a further €570,000 (£494,000) with €190,000 (£154,000) for a draw.
With six wins out of six plus the money they got for qualifying for the group stage, Arsenal earned €3.42m (£2.97m).
Added to that is a further €1m (£870,000) for winning the group and an additional €500,000 (£433m) for making it to the last 16.

Fans spot what Lacazette did against Benfica
AS Monaco are eyeing a summer move for striker Alexandre Lacazette.
That is according to the Mirror as Arsenal may be prepared to cash in on the Frenchman this summer if he shows no signs of signing a new deal, meaning they will not wish to run the risk of losing him for free in the final few months of his contract.
Amid speculation regarding his future, Lacazette was in action for the Gunners on Thursday evening and fans on Reddit have spotted what he did against Benfica.
The Arsenal No.9 was a second-half substitute in Athens and was on the pitch for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s winner.
Such was Lacazette’s excitement at the goal that he almost took the head off a Benfica player.
As seen in the image above, the 29-year-old couldn’t resist the chance to smash the ball back into the net before running off to celebrate with his teammate.
