& # 39; We must remain compact in defense & # 39 ;: Granit Xhaka believes that one goal will be enough for Arsenal to make progress against Napoli in the quarterfinals of the Europa League
- Granit Xhaka is of the opinion that Arsenal only needs one goal if they are to Napoli
- Arsenal has a lead of two goals in the quarterfinals after the second stage of the Europa League
- Xhaka feels that Arsenal's victory over Watford can be enormously important
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka believes that one goal is sufficient for his team in Naples to achieve Napoli's tie and to qualify for the Europa League semi-final.
Arsenal has two goals ahead after the first leg in London, but goes to the boiler of the San Paolo Stadium knowing that the Italians are more than capable of making a comeback. Napoli defeated Liverpool earlier this season at home in the Champions League group stage.
Xhaka said: & # 39; They must come (to us). We had a good result at home, we have to stay compact in defense, a good balance and if we score one out of goal, I think the game is over, but they are strong enough to beat us when we're not done.

& # 39; It will not be easy in Napoli as you have seen with Liverpool there or Paris [Saint-Germain]. Napoli has a good team, especially with their fans, but 2-0 is a good result and I hope we can go to the semi-final. & # 39;
Xhaka also believes that the following week will be decisive in the battle for the top four in the Premier League. Only three points separate Tottenham in third and Manchester United in sixth place.
This weekend, Arsenal faces a home game against Crystal Palace while Tottenham with a trip to Manchester City and Manchester United will make a tough game against Everton next week for the Manchester derby.
Xhaka believes that Arsenal's 1-0 win at Watford on Monday night can be crucial.

& # 39; I think the biggest game for us today was. At Everton we had a great opportunity to be there. We are now in fourth place, two points above United, one game less than Chelsea and one point behind Tottenham and they play against City. It can be a big, big weekend for us. & # 39;
However, it was only the sixth Premier League of Arsenal that managed to win the season and had to improve that record.
Xhaka added: & # 39; We need a different character. It's not always easy to play, we have to take the duels, we have to win the duels, and you can see if you do that, you can win the game. We weren't so happy with Everton, but you could see today that we fought as a team.
& # 39; I don't care if we win 1-0 or 6-0, they are the same three points. We want to stay in the top four – we want to be back in the Champions League. & # 39;
