Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will need to fire if Arsenal are to make the Europa League semi-finals

Manchester United and Arsenal will look to follow Chelsea and Manchester City into European semi-finals this evening as the second legs of the Europa League quarter-finals take place.

United are on course to do so following a 2-0 victory in Granada last Thursday, while Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Slavia Prague has left them with plenty of work still to do.

LiveScore have profiles of the in-form Fred and out-of-sorts Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to get you ready for the matches.

Slavia Prague vs Arsenal (8pm, BT Sport) 

A wasteful display in front of goal means Arsenal head to Slavia Prague with it all to do following a 1-1 draw at the Emirates.

Nicolas Pepe’s 86th-minute strike looked to have rescued Mikel Arteta’s men, only for Tomas Holes’ to head home an equaliser three minutes into stoppage time.

Skipper Aubameyang, 31, used to be the club’s most reliable source of goals but he has struggled this campaign, even starting last week’s clash on the bench.

We assess what has gone wrong for the former Borussia Dortmund striker and how the Gunners can get him firing again.

Manchester United vs Granada (8pm, BT Sport)

A late penalty from Bruno Fernandes rounded off a perfect evening in Spain for United last week following Marcus Rashford’s first-half opener.

It means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are in the driving seat at Old Trafford as they look to secure a spot in the final four.

Brazilian midfielder Fred was rested for that trip ahead of what proved to be a crucial 3-1 Premier League win at Tottenham on Sunday.
