Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat at French side Rennes on Thursday night in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie.
An early goal put Unai Emery’s team in front at the Stade de la Route de Lorient but two yellow cards before half-time for defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos left them in the lurch.
An equaliser was scored immediately following the red card and the hosts went on to conclude a comprehensive comeback, taking a strong lead back to the Emirates.

Aubameyang and Lukaku have definitely done some sort of Space Jam shit and swapped talents.#RENARS

Man sent off, lead lost, falling behind to a spectacular OG. A proper Arsenal performance summed up beautifully by this picture. pic.twitter.com/5T27a0Kp67
