Arsenal manager Unai Emery is adamant that the job is not done in their semifinal tie with Spanish La Liga club Valencia in the Europa League.

Unai Emery and his players took a big step towards sealing a spot in the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan at the end of the month with a 3-1 win over their Spanish opponents.

It was the first leg of their semifinal tie played at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night with the second leg still to come at the Mestalla next week Thursday.

At his post-match press conference after the game, Unai Emery told reporters that the tie is still a 50-50 despite the Gunners advantage as he warned against complacency on the part of his team.

Arsenal went into the Valencia game on the back of three straight defeats in the league and that poor run of form appeared to affect them early on in the game as the visitors took advantage.

Moukthar Diakhaby gave Valencia a stunning lead to wake the Arsenal team up from their slumber.

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette accepted the challenge of getting his team back into the game and the Europa League tie with two goals in the first half before strike partner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up the 3-1 win with few minutes left on the clock.
