Arsenal came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Standard Liege, a result which sees them top Group F ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Freddie Ljungberg’s side struggled in the first half before the Belgian side struck after half-time through Samuel Bastien.

Selim Amallah then doubled the lead, with Arsenal looking certain to finish as runners-up in their group.

But Alexandre Lacazette equalised thanks to a Bukayo Saka cross, before the winger scored the equaliser with a smart finish into the bottom corner.

Arsenal are through to the knockout rounds of the Europa League after the draw – a result that ensures not only that the Gunners won their group, but that they will also be seeded for Monday’s draw.

The 12 Europa League group winners will be seeded for the draw, along with Ajax, Inter, Benfica and Salzburg, who all drop into the competition from the Champions League.

Here is who they could face.

Bukayo Saka’s message

Bukayo Saka thanked Arsenal fans for their support after scoring to help his side to a 2-2 draw against Standard Liege.

The winger provided the assist for Alexandre Lacazette’s goal, before the winger scored the equaliser with a smart finish into the bottom corner.

Taking to Twitter after the game, the teenager posted a message to supporters.

Man City fans of Mauricio Pochettino

According to  The Mail , Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has a break release clause inserted in his contract which would allow him to leave the Etihad at the end of this season.

Guardiola only signed a new two-year contract last season, but should he leave, the report claims that City have drawn up contingency plans with officials at the Etihad Stadium admirers of former Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino has also been closely linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks, with reports claiming that the Gunners are keen to speak to the Argentinian.

The former Spurs boss has made no secret of his desire to return to the Premier League, and if City’s failure in the title race results in Guardiola’s departure, Pochettino may find it hard to turn down the Citizens.
