Aubameyang treble sends Arsenal into Europa League final

SHOWS: VALENCIA, SPAIN (MAY 9, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARSENAL COACH, UNAI EMERY, SAYING: "After the Premier League loss, we took strong in our mind to prepare and focus, to work hard to take this final.

And we can be proud of the players, of the work, of our supporters, they are here today with us.

And the success has not finished because there is one more step to play the final and we are happy but also we know it's going to continue be difficult to win.

But it is not easy to play finals." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARSENAL COACH, UNAI EMERY, SAYING: "Yes they are very, very good strikers.

I am proud of them, how they worked defensively.

Big players can be good strikers but when their commitment is like today defensively also working for help us, it is amazing." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARSENAL COACH UNAI EMERY, SAYING: "When we received the first goal how can we come back from this result and also keep our game plan and be calm?

Because at the beginning they pushed a lot against us with a big atmosphere here and I think our response was amazing." STORY: A hat-trick from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and an Alexandre Lacazette strike booked Arsenal's place in the Europa League final with a 4-2 win at Valencia on Thursday (May 9) to seal an emphatic 7-3 aggregate victory.

Unai Emery's side will face Chelsea in Baku on May 29 after their London rivals beat Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties to ensure both European club competitions will feature all-English finals.

Arsenal's first win on Spanish soil since beating Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in 2006 kept their hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League through Europe's secondary competition alive.

In a week of improbable European comebacks, Valencia, trailing 3-1 from the first leg, were seeking to become the latest side to overturn a hefty deficit and made the perfect start as Kevin Gameiro slid in to convert Rodrigo's centre with 11 minutes played.

Rodrigo sent an effort wide as the home crowd sensed an upset, but Arsenal were soon level when Aubameyang notched his first out of nothing, producing a fine finish from outside the box from Lacazette's flick on following goalkeeper Petr Cech's long clearance.

In a news conference following the game, coach Unai Emery praised the commitment of his attacking due not only in the front but also working in defence.
