PSV fans caused chaos as they ripped out seats and threw torches at Arsenal fans after the final whistle of their Europa League game.

The Gunners took a win over the Dutch side thanks to a volley in the second half from Granit Xhaka at the Emirates Stadium.

The win assured the Gunners a safe passage to the next round of the European tournament. With a point in the Netherlands, they can guarantee a leading position in the group next week.

Mikel Arteta’s eighth consecutive win in all competitions was overshadowed as riot police tried to defuse the situation after chairs and objects were thrown between the home and away supporters.

It only got worse when PSV supporters fired a flare at the home fans a few minutes after the final whistle.

UEFA will now investigate the incident and may fine Ruud Van Nisterooy’s side for their actions.

Arsenal have now won their first four games of a Europa League campaign for the second time and now head to PSV for next week’s return, needing just one point to lead the group.

The group winners secure a place in the last 16 of the competition and avoid a draw in the play-offs with teams that drop out in the Champions League.

“We had really good moments and we were really dominant against a really good side,” Arteta told BT Sport.

“I think we just missed that last pass or that shot. But we are very happy to win the match, and we [have] qualified, which is the first step.

‘In Europe you have to control the opponent. They are very talented, used to winning and the number of goals they have scored is unbelievable. We were really composed and mature.

“If you get the chance in Europe, you should grab it. The difference between finishing first and second is big and we want to get the job done.’
