For the first time in 21 years, the Premier League giants from north London are not in the Champions League.
A disappointing domestic campaign resulted in Gunners finishing outside the top four last term, forcing them to settle for a place in a less alluring competition of Europa League. Arsene Wenger promises not to take this European challenge lightly, but is still expected to treat it the same way he treats the League Cup of FA Cup.
Europa League will be a perfect chance for certain players to gain match fitness and valuable international experience, while for others it will be perhaps the only chance to feel the pride of playing in the first team.
Wenger will be looking to give further playing time to the likes of Alex Iwobi, Mohamed Elneny, Per Mertesacker, David Ospina, Olivier Giroud, Calum Chambers and young Reiss Nelson. Some of these names are unavailable for the debut match against FC Koln but are expected to play a significant part in the competition this season.
Jack Wilshere is another player who could benefit from the Europa League so it’s fair to say that our team deserves full support ahead of this international competition which could prove to be highly beneficial.
It could prove to be beneficial for the fans as well, especially for those who like to place a bet or two on their favourite team. The bookies are doing their best to treat punters with some rather enticing odds and offers which is exactly the case with this one we are presenting today.
