Petr Čech and Arsenal secure last four Europa League place

Emre Can of Liverpool clashes with Jack Wilshire of Arsenal during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Liverpool at Emirates Stadium

Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin both both scored from rebounds after former Chelsea star Cech.

But nerves were calmed 15 minutes from time when Mohamed Elneny set up Welbeck, who curled in a delightful effor before Ramsey scored in stoppage time to make sure of Arsenal's place in today's semi-final draw, alongside Atletico Madrid, Marseille and Red Bull Salzburg.

"I feel that maybe we were a bit surprised by the intensity at the start", he said.

"It should be every year".

In a week that has seen Roma shock Barcelona and Juventus nearly beat Real Madrid in remarkable UEFA Champions League quarter-final matches, much of the pre-match talk in Russian Federation focused on the need for Arsenal to put in a professional performance to defend their 4-1 first-leg advantage.

"You could see when you have a big difference after the first game it's hard to turn up with the same urgency than if a difference is very small and that played a part in the way we played in the first half", said Wenger.

CSKA hopes were raised further as Nababkin made it 2-0 in the 50th minute after Cech had beaten away Alexander Golovin's long-range strike.

Salzburg lost 4-2 to Lazio in Rome last week but won 4-1 in the return in Austria, despite Ciro Immobile giving the Italians a second-half lead on the night.

Stefan Ilsanker's own goal put Marseille level on the night and the French club were ahead inside 10 minutes when a lighting counter-attack ended with Bouna Sarr firing home.

The Londoners will know their semi-final opponent's when UEFA conducts its draws in Nyon on Friday. "At 2-1 we looked good to get to 2-2 and we did".

The hosts proceeded to score four times in 20 minutes to advance 6-5 on aggregate.

Arsenal have reached the semi-finals of a European competition for the first time since the 2008-09 Champions League campaign.
