Hector Bellerin sends clear message to Arsenal fans about Alexis Sanchez

Reiss Nelson celebrates scoring for Arsenal U23s

The Gunners will start their Europa League campaign against the Bundesliga side on Thursday, and the Spaniard makes it clear that it is a very important competition for the club this season. The right-back who has since established himself as an integral member of the first-team has defended Arsenal transfer policy.

Manchester United won the Europa League last season to qualify for the Champions League and, with a battle for a top-four Premier League finish likely to be more competitive than ever, Wenger may eventually be tempted to look at the same path. They've lost all three matches, and they've only scored once in the process. The Gunners are set to play European football on a Thursday and Arsene Wenger has given his team news ahead of the clash.

Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Laurent Koscielny, Granit Xhaka, Petr Cech and Danny Welbeck were all absent as a thinned-out Arsenal squad took part in training drills.

Those seven players all missed Arsenal's training session on Wednesday.

"Now we have to continue, we have to rest tomorrow and then to start to think about the next game, a strong game, a tough game against Arsenal (on Sunday)".

Who will Arsenal play instead?

Chelsea smashed Champions League opponents Qarabag 6-0 last night, sending a warning to Arsenal.

Jack Wilshere is in line to receive his first Arsenal start of the season against Cologne since he's returned from his loan spell at Bournemouth.
