Sokratis: 'Arsenal defended as a team'

Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos praised his teammates for their defending against Napoli and discussed their ambitions.

The Gunners had won the first leg 2-0 at home, but also emerged 1-0 winners at the Stadio San Paolo in a 3-0 Europa League quarter-final aggregate victory.

“We played very well at home, especially for the first 60-70 minutes. We came here to play focused, concentrated, compact in defence and I think the whole squad defended very well,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“I think the objective is to finish in the top four of the Premier League. I think we ought to be third, ahead of Tottenham. And why not, win the Europa League too?”
