Wenger prefers top-four finish over Europa League glory

Wenger prefers top-four finish over Europa League glory

This campaign has started badly for the Billy Goats, who have lost their opening three league games to sit bottom of the table - they are the only top-flight German side without a point so far.

On Thursday night, at the odd and unfamiliar time of 8:05 p.m. BST, Arsenal's demotion on the European stage will become reality when they kick off their opening game of the Europa League group stage at home to FC Koln. He has been injured at the start of the season so he was a bit behind the others.

"As a top club you are expected to play two-three times a week so we have to be able to cope with that".

Here we look at some key things for boss Arsene Wenger to consider on that front.

Apple Watch 3 gets cellular connectivity
The device's screen doubles up as an antenna, Apple explained, while there's an electronic SIM integrated directly into the Watch. The new LTE modem makes it even more functional as owners will no longer need to stay within Bluetooth range of their iPhones.

'This is a challenge but in the Bundesliga we have played against teams with similar qualities as Arsenal'.

Stoger, though, has the services of Marcel Risse and Milos Jojic, after both players returned to training ahead of the away day visit to North London.

Asked if he can get back to his best, Wenger replied: "Yes, if he is injury-free he will come back". "Every game is an opportunity for him and this season is a good opportunity for him as well".

Wenger cited recent global duty as one of the main reason for resting stars but the move hints at previous statements prioritizing the Premier League over other competitions.

Arsene Wenger revealed on Wednesday that several of his first-choice players will be rested for their Group H opener at the Emirates Stadium.

"It's true that I was close to leaving the club as I said I wanted to play but [I stayed] after a big reflection with family and close friends". The prize of winning the Europa League is a place in next season's Champions League, so there is a chance that this may be the Gunners best bet of getting back among Europe's elite sides. What is clear is that in the Arsenal squad there are a number of notable players who are still waiting to start a game this season, including Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.

"We are very focused on the Europa League and want to go and win it".
