How will Arsenal approach the Europa League?

Bellerin: Spending £200m on players is not right

Last year's failure to finish in the top four means Arsene Wenger's side will instead be competing in the Europa League in 2017/18, their campaign beginning with a clash against Bundesliga outfit Koln at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday evening.

"We will take it seriously but the priority is to focus on the Premier League and combining the two", said Wenger.

Olivier Giroud is expected to come in to lead the attack in his first start of the season while if Walcott is deployed on the right then we could see Alex Iwobi also making a rare start.

Magic Kingdom, Epcot , Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios will reopen at 9 a.m., but Disney Springs opens at 10 a.m. Our destination saw relatively minor damage overnight involving fences, trees, signage and building facades.

However, Alexis Sanchez is likely to start the match, after training in the last three days following his appearance off the bench against Bournemouth.

Whatever the Europa League offers, is The Wilsh can use it as a platform to resurrect his career, even if it won't be at Arsenal, some good can come of it. So far this season, even with the absence of the brilliant Santi Cazorla and the struggles of other central midfielders in the squad, Wilshere has still been unable to get a look in a game since the pre-season ended.

Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla are both ruled out with injuries while Callum Chambers is a doubt due to a groin issue. As the Frenchman himself said in May, following the FA Cup final win against Chelsea: "Fans at Arsenal will always remember the trophies their club won". We train every day very hard to be able to win the Premier League.

With two days less to prepare, Arsene Wenger is likely to rotate his side heavily. "We were at the start of our path". "In England it is not easy to win but I have good players". "You risk a lot", said Conte .

It is the first time in 21 years that Arsenal have not been involved in the Champions League after they finished fifth in the Premier League last season.

Giroud said: "It's true that I was close to leaving the club but I wanted to stay as I thought the story was not over". Arsenal my have had a battle-hardened core of English veterans, but Wenger nearly immediately brought with him a change of focus toward continental players and methods that saw careers extended and trophies lifted.

"We made 75 points past year and overall I am humble enough to be happy enough to win every single competition".
