Olympiacos 1-3 Arsenal: PLAYER RATINGS

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal showed character to beat Olympiacos 3-1 in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16.

A superb Martin Odegaard strike - his first for the Gunners - put the visitors ahead in Greece. 

However, as has happened so many times this season, Arsenal were coasting only to concede a sloppy goal when El-Arabi levelled after the interval. 

Yet, the north Londoners refused to be bowed and struck back with goals through Gabriel and substitute Mohamed Elneny to win the match.

Read on for the Gooner Fanzine's PLAYER RATINGS on a big night for Arsenal.
