Arsenal boss Unai Emery feels his side can go all the way in the Europa League this season after their 3-0 win over Rennes on Thursday night.

A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a goal from Ainsley Maitland-Niles ensured it was the Gunners who progressed 4-3 on aggregate to reach the quarter-finals.

Emery was delighted with the result and now the former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain boss feels his side can do something special in the competition this season.

The Spaniard said: "We can feel the possibility of winning this title."

"The last eight teams are very important teams and it is going to be very difficult," Emery added. "The Europa League is giving us a big opportunity also to make one way to the Champions League.

"And also, it's one title. I said to the players, I am excited about this competition. It's not just because you can get to the Champions League."

The Gunners are looking to win the competition for the first time under manager Emery, who managed to win it on three occasions with Sevilla.

Arsenal are 5/1 to win the Europa League this season, while London rivals Chelsea are 7/4 to claim the title.
