Neville names ideal candidate to replace Wenger at Arsenal

Atletico Madrid have decided to charge Arsenal fans £79 for their tickets to watch second leg

We made important changes and the players responded, I had to rotate to ensure we had fresh players.

Equally frustrating will be the realisation their remote title hopes are nearly over - they have just four games more to play and trail Barcelona by 11 points.

Griezmann came off the bench just after the hour mark, but Simeone's side could not get the breakthrough and they are four points clear of third-placed Real Madrid, who have a game in hand having not played this weekend.

"We didn't hit the target we wanted at the beginning of the season and we understand the fans and that they are not happy, but today we need to show our respect for one person who did not create, but helped to build the club into what it is now - one of the biggest clubs in the world".

And that leaves winning the Europa League as their last realistic remaining hope of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

"We have to keep fighting to improve ourselves and try to maintain our position in La Liga", Simeone said at a press conference on the eve of the Betis clash.

"Ozil was sickness [flu] so I can not tell you much more about that".

Even though we have a small squad, our figures away from home have dropped.

Atletico do have pedigree in this competition though, having won the competition in both 2010 and 2012, and can boast the incredible stat of having won 22 of their last 26 Europa League fixtures.

Arsenal are now in sixth place in the Premier League table and therefore look like they are going to miss out on a top-four finish.

After the subsidies were announced, the AST praised Arsenal on Twitter "for helping our fans going out to Madrid to support the team".

Speaking on The Gary Neville Podcast, the Sky Sports pundit believes Argentine Simeone has the credentials to take Arsenal forward, particularly if they will not be spending as much as the likes of the Manchester clubs and Chelsea. We could suffer a blip at any moment, but against Betis, in front of our people, we want to put in an intense display and take the game where we want it to go.
