Arsenal v Ostersunds FK - UEFA Europa League
Arsenal players celebrating the much-needed goal

Arsenal may have qualified for the Round of 16 in Europa League but the way they did was horrific. Coming into the second leg with a comfortable three-goal lead, one would have thought this match was just a mere formality. Little did they know that this could have turned out to be one of their worst nights in European football.

Graham Potter had said that his side would need a miracle to go further into the competition and the visiting fans thought the miracle could happen. The visitors had a positive start and were pressing high in a game where they had nothing to lose.

There were two goals scored in a span of 69 seconds to send the home fans in a state of utter shock and dismay. At half-time, it looked as if Arsenal could be knocked out but an early error from the visitors inside the box led to a much-needed goal from Kolasinac.

Despite going through to the next round, Twitterati couldn't contain their excitement. Here are some of the best reactions that we managed to find.
