Hatem Ben Arfa, who had a spectacularly stormy relationship with Unai Emery at Paris Saint-Germain, said he spent some of this match laughing at Arsenal’s manager. The Rennes midfielder also said he had predicted his team would win here by at least 3-1 and is confident they can finish the job by ending Arsenal’s Europa League campaign in London next week.
This was a deeply satisfying way for Ben Arfa to celebrate his 32nd birthday. Asked whether the result gave him particular pleasure because it was against Emery, he replied: “No, my motivation was to play a solid match, to win and get ourselves into a good position to go through. That’s what was in my head. But I did see the same Emery, as agitated as ever. I looked over at him a few times and that made me laugh a little. He hasn’t changed.
