Arsenal were held to a goalless draw by Serbian side Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade) on Thursday night in the Europa League.

The Gunners did not take long to threaten the visitor’s goal, as within the first minute Theo Walcott found himself in on goal, only for goalkeeper Borjan to come out and pick up the ball.

The home side had the next best chance. Joe Willock’s cross towards Olivier Giroud cleared away to Walcott, whose effort on goal deflected behind for a corner kick.

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Serbian side FK Crvena Zvezda at the Emirates Stadium in the group stages of the Europa League. A win in the clash could see the Gunners place in the knockout stages.

Arsenal have prioritised winning other competitions ahead of the Europa League. However, the team from north London have still managed to win all three of their group games so far and put themselves in pole position to win the group.

In fact, the Gunners all-round form has improved, as they have recorded four straight wins in all competitions. Arsene Wenger’s side recorded a very tight 1-0 win in the reverse fixture.
