"Great quality": Slavia Prague coach names two Arsenal players his side couldn't cope with

Slavia Prague coach Jindrich Trpisovsky admits that his side struggled to contain Alexandre Lacazette and Emile Smith Rowe during their Europa League 1 - 1 draw with Arsenal. The Gunners were close to winning the first leg of the quarter-final before Tomas Holes’ 93rd-minute equaliser. However, the Czech champion's boss thinks there were still players that caused a real problem for his team. “Arsenal showed great quality in the first half, they have great players. They are terribly strong and well equipped with speed,” Trpisovsky told the club’s website.  “We had problems with Lacazette, who went very deep for the ball and made room for the wingers.   “Arsenal has great offensive players. We saw the substitutions, players like Aubameyang, Martinelli and Pepe, who were very hungry.”  Then he added: “We have to improve next time. When you are locked in the final third of the field, they rotate perfectly, they are like fish in water and it is very difficult to defend. “Smith Rowe helped them a lot in the middle of the field.”
