  • Wenger Reveals Why He Turned Down Man Utd In 2001 Posted by Daniel Jenkins

Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi has expressed his readiness ahead of Arsenal's Group H UEFA Europa League clash against Bundesliga club FC Cologne at the Emirates on Thursday.

Upon arriving at Stamford Bridge, Conte abandoned Chelsea's four at the back system for a 3-4-3 formation which saw his side win the Premier League title last season.

The Billy Goats, as they are nicknamed, have faced Arsenal before in European competition, playing Bertie Mee's Arsenal in the semi-finals of the European Fairs Cup during the club's first double season in 1970/71.

Arsenal boss Wenger has already said the Premier League is the priority for the Gunners this season.

The competition could, possibly, also provide the Gunners with an alternative route into next season's Champions League, an opportunity that Manchester United took up with aplomb last term.

Wenger, though, is not using the weekend's fixture as an excuse for an under-par display in Europe three days beforehand.

Reiss Nelson of Arsenal celebrates after scoring his sides first goal during the Premier League 2 match between Arsenal and Liverpool at Meadow Park on August 25, 2017 in Borehamwood, England.

Their talisman from last season, Anthony Modeste, is now out on loan in the Chinese Super League having hit 25 goals for Stoger's men last season.

Paris Saint-Germain seemingly changed the transfer market forever with the £200m signing of Neymar last month, but Bellerin - who was linked with a move to Barcelona himself - now appears to get ready to get on with matters at the Emirates. Who will come out on top? "There are a few players who have some response to the fact they played two worldwide games - like Ozil and Ramsey".

Francis Coquelin misses out with a hamstring injury sustained during Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth while Santi Cazorla remains a long-term absentee.

That does not necessarily mean it will be a team of inexperienced youngsters as Jack Wilshere could make a long-awaited comeback while Alexis Sanchez may feature as he strives for match sharpness.

"Sanchez also likely to start".

"I have said many times that his contribution has been huge". David Ospina should replace Petr Cech in the goal.
