Danny Welbeck to the rescue after serious scare for Gunners

Mkhitaryan is set to return to action within two weeks according to manager Arsene Wenger

In Moscow, Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin scored for CSKA to set Arsenal nerves jangling, as the hosts looked to overturn a 4-1 deficit from the first leg. Hopefully we can progress another round and give it a shot in the final.

Fyodor Chalov opened the scoring when he tapped home a rebound off Arsenal keeper Petr Cech.

The former Manchester United star also believes that the England star has no chance of being offer a contract at a bigger club than Arsenal as his "career is drifting".

In recent years Gunners fans have been devoid of watching their side being on the cusp of glory in Europe, the Europa League might be the Champions League's unloved cousin, but for so many it represents their best chance of hoisting a European title.

But they did that before the interval in front of a huge Velodrome crowd, via a Stefan Ilsanker own goal, Bouna Sarr and Florian Thauvin.

The Russians are up to 75 minutes claimed another European Cup comeback, but the goal Danny Welbeck dispelled their hopes for the semifinals.

'As every player, I would like to play in these games. "You can feel it", the goalkeeper said.

"There is a big responsibility for everyone because we know with the position we are in the league", said Cech.

The Wenger In, Wenger Out debate continues to rage on as the North London side show no real threat of returning to their superior, glory days.

The Gunners have been linked with a potential switch to sign the playmaker at the end of the season following his impressive performances at CSKA Moscow.

Legendary Premier League midfielder Roy Keane delivered a brutal assessment of Jack Wilshere following Arsenal's 2-2 draw away at CSKA Moscow on Thursday night.

The Italian team lost the first leg 4-1 in Spain, but progressed on away goals following a 3-0 home victory.

"That is something really exceptional, you do not find it in many players."
The 21-year-old scored a crucial away goal at the Emirates with a wonderful free-kick, and almost repeated the feat at the VEB Arena.

That changed following the introduction of Vitinho, who was sent on by Viktor Goncharenko in place of the injured Alan Dzagoev and played a part in the opener.

"This is sometimes the most important, rather than playing attractive football".

Wenger would not be drawn on his preferred semifinal opponent, with Atletico Madrid, Marseille and Red Bull Salzburg lurking in Friday's draw.
