It took them just five minutes to make the breakthrough with Aubameyang turned the ball home from close range after Aaron Ramsey found him with a precise delivery.

And 10 minutes later they doubled their advantage, drawing level on aggregate as a result.

This time Aubameyang – who looked to be in an offside position – was the provider as he teed up a delicious cross for Ainsley Maitland-Niles who nodded in at the back post.

The comeback was complete after the break, with Aubameyang finishing off a fine team move with a simple tap-in with 18 minutes remaining.
