Carlo Ancelotti is not expecting an easy game against Arsenal with Unai Emery in the home dug-out as Napoli travel to the Emirates on Thursday.


Napoli and Arsenal clash in London for the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final.


Emery’s side come into the game on the back of another costly away defeat in the Premier League, but Ancelotti heaped praise on his counterpart.


The Napoli boss was reminded of his last trip to the Emirates, when his Bayern Munich side beat Arsenal 5-1 in 2017.


‘If I say I forgot [this match] it is not true,’ said Ancelotti.


‘I did not forget but each game is a different story, imagine every season different clubs, different manager so it will be a totally different story.

‘That game with Bayern is only a good memory. Unai Emery is, in my opinion, a fantastic manager with a lot of knowledge.


‘He has experience of this kind of game and the fact he is on the bench of Arsenal will be more difficult for us.’


Arsenal are aiming to win the Europa League to guarantee qualification for the Champions League after slipping out of the top four of the league.


Emery has a remarkable record in the competition, having won it three times in a row with Sevilla.
