Wenger: Arsenal Must Win Europa League To Return To UCL

Grant SmithMar 08, 2018

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is eligible to play in the Europa League so I expect the Armenian worldwide will keep his place despite a disappointing start to life at Arsenal following his January move from Man Utd.

"Last year we won the FA Cup, we made 75 points and missed out of the Champions League by one point". At the moment, it is certainly hard when you go through a patch like that but I believe as well it is a good opportunity to show you have the quality and the strengths.

The only remaining hope for silverware, and a return to the Champions League, is to win the Europa League but first they must get past Milan, who are on a 13-game unbeaten run and have not conceded in six games after Gennaro Gattuso took over in December.

"In life you forget quickly how good you are", he told a news conference.

"At the moment it's certainly hard when you go through a patch like that".

"We knew from the off, if we had a good start and played on the front foot and got after them, we would have a chance".

"When you have a bad week, players change their mind about their own quality". But as well to fix reachable targets.

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has had to visit hospital for tests on a knee ligament injury, manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed.

Be sure to join us next time, following the inevitable win against AC Milan, and before we welcome Watford to the Emirates, where we hopefully won't have to worry about Troy Deeney questioning our cojones again.

Arsenal players are "unsettled" by the growing pay divide between the majority of the Gunners squad and the club's recent big signings.

"We are a in a negative spiral and it's hard to get out of this, so we need to stay positive in our heads because the brain dictates our legs and our body". "It doesn't matter what is going on outside, we need to stay together as a team".
