Arsenal Football Club will play CSKA Moscow in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League, as revealed in the official draw which was made earlier today.

“There were a couple [of Tottenham] fans – very vocal – next to my bench, who went missing after the 80th minute, so yeah, I enjoyed it. Plus winning at Wembley is always special.”
