Arsenal’s misery continues but furious fans give Kroenke a glimpse of what’s to come

  Arsenal’s misery continues but furious fans give Kroenke a glimpse of what’s to come Gunners fans made their voices heard before Friday's game, and a Bernd Leno howler then proved costly against EvertonSometimes the game just doesn’t really matter.

The Europa League semifinals continue on Thursday as Arsenal host Villarreal at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners are facing a 2-1 deficit after dropping the first leg away to Villarreal last week, and will be reunited with former manager Unai Emery, who now coaches the Spanish club and is just one match from another cup final. Despite the 2-1 aggregate, Arsenal are considered favorites and will look to take advantage of their away goal against the Spanish side.

It was a game of extraordinary shifts. In the end, Arsenal may have been a little disappointed, but a one-goal defeat represented a significant comeback and evidence of character and fighting spirit from a team that has often lacked those qualities of late.

Rongen's take: Former Gunners boss Unai Emery returns to Emirates Stadium up 2-1 and with a battle-hardened outfit packed full of experienced performers well equipped to cope with pressure. Expect a high-scoring stalemate and Villarreal to advance to the final. Pick: Arsenal 2, Villarreal 2 (Villarreal advance 4-3 on aggregate)

Arsenal vs. Villarreal: 2nd Leg - Predicted Lineup, Bench & Score

  Arsenal vs. Villarreal: 2nd Leg - Predicted Lineup, Bench & Score Who’s ready to make the Europa League Final?Arteta ruled out any involvement by Kieran Tierney and Alex Lacazette in Thursday’s match, and for now, we have to expect David Luiz to also be unavailable. However, if we make the Europa League final all three could contribute.

Romano's take: As with Slavia Prague, Arsenal can play in the second leg and win their way into the final. Experience and history can make the difference -- the talented Bukayo Saka, too. Pick: Arsenal 2, Villarreal 0 (Arsenal advance 3-2 on aggregate)

Here are several odds and trends for Roma vs. Manchester United:Manchester United vs. Roma spread: Manchester United -0.5Manchester United vs. Roma over-under: 3.5 goalsManchester United vs.

Echegaray's take: I think Unai Emery is looking back at the tape of the first leg and ruing the fact that his team really should have killed the opponent. One side of the coin tells you that the Spanish side had more opportunities to dismantle Arsenal, especially after Dani Ceballos's red card in the 57th minute. But when you look at the statistics, Arsenal were actually -- at least for the purpose of possession -- the team in control. They also took as many shots as the home side, it's just that few went on target. A 2-1 advantage is not enough to make me think Villarreal enter this game as the clear favorite, but they do hold the lead and if they're smarter with their chances and productivity, they should reach the final. But I don't know, something about this game tells me that for once, just this once, Arsenal's fate will finally be determined by fortune going THEIR way. Pick: Arsenal 3, Villarreal 1 a.e.t. (Arsenal advance 4-3 on aggregate)

  Arsenal vs. Villarreal Live Stream: Watch Europa League Online, TV Channel, Time Arsenal and Villarreal meet in the second leg of the Europa League semifinals on Thursday, May 6. View the original article to see embedded media.There's a lot more on the line for Arsenal than the usual stakes of a European semifinal when it hosts Villarreal in Thursday's Europa League second leg. Sitting in ninth, five points behind a qualifying spot in next season's Europa League, the Gunners need a win at the Emirates, the site of fan protests over the last two weeks, or they will risk missing out on European competition for the first time in 26 years.

Johnson's take: Emery gets another shot at Europa League glory after steering the Yellow Submarine past his former employers and into the final. Pick: Arsenal 1, Villarreal 1 (Villarreal advance 3-2 on aggregate)

What now for Arteta? Arsenal manager in firing line as Villarreal leave season in ruins

  What now for Arteta? Arsenal manager in firing line as Villarreal leave season in ruins The Gunners are at risk of missing out on European football next season having seen their Europa League campaign ended by Unai EmeryWhat now for Mikel Arteta?

Benge's take: There is every reason to think Arsenal will be vastly improved. Kieran Tierney and David Luiz can bolster the defense while the disastrous strikerless system from the first leg can be ditched with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang available again. Even on an off-night the Gunners did enough to test a Villarreal side that will be without key weapons including Juan Foyth and the away goal they got should count for a lot. Except, do you really believe a team whose defining trait is its propensity to self-destruct won't concede at least once? Arsenal have left themselves with much too much to do. Pick: Arsenal 2, Villarreal 2 (Villarreal advance 4-3 on aggregate)

Gonzalez's take: The Gunners concede early to Gerard Moreno, but the attack kicks into gear with an electric display, overpowering the visitors' slow defense to advance to the final. Pick: Arsenal 3, Villarreal 1 (Arsenal advance 4-3 on aggregate)

Herrera's take: Arsenal dropped the first leg against Villarreal, but the 2-1 aggregate is narrow enough for the team to overcome. The home advantage could come into play against a Villarreal side that isn't quite used to big moments in the European stage. Pick: Arsenal 2, Villarreal 0 (Arsenal advance 3-2 on aggregate)

Goodman's take: Arsenal managed to somehow escape the first leg of this matchup with their chances of winning intact. At home they won't face anything as challenging as being down two goals and a man with their tournament on the line. Unai Emery may be a Europa League wizard, but Arsenal's ability to control the ball will ultimately be too much for Villarreal. Pick: Arsenal 2, Villarreal 0 (Arsenal advance 3-2 on aggregate)
