Arsenal are out of the Europa League after 5-3 defeat to Sporting Lisbon on penalties at the Emirates Stadium.

Despite the score being 2-2 on aggregate going into the match, Granit Xhaka put the home side ahead in 19 minutes with a low drive but Pedro Goncalves scored a stunning equaliser on 62 minutes.

Bothe sides could not be separated in 120 minutes, and after the first seven penalties were scored, Gabriel Martinelli penalty was saved by Adan and Nuno Santos netted the winner for Sporting.

This defeat has forced Arsenal to focus all of their efforts on their attempts to end their long wait for a league title.
