Ahead of Arsenal's matchday one home game against Cologne on Thursday, Wenger stated that the Europa League is one of the competitions in his target list.

"But the most important for me is to win, obviously, and after the goals will come".

"They can all have an opinion on the manager and the players, it's their right".

Europa League glory would guarantee a Champions League place next season but Wenger believes the best way to qualify is via the Premier League.

"In training, he is getting stronger". Coquelin is out for three weeks.

His "obvious" ability, even in a press conference, became obvious when his first 79-word answer contained the word "obviously" three times.

Nelson could be a young face on display while fringe players such as Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere could have a chance to sharpen up.

The Arsenal manager said, "a few players have had some response to playing two global games like Ozil and Ramsey, so they are rested completely".

The German goalkeeper, who is admittedly an Arsenal fan, has already amassed over 150 appearances for his boyhood club, and is rated as one of the most promising young goalkeepers in Germany. If he is injury-free, he will come back to his best.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's Super Sunday clash against Premier League champions Chelsea, Bellerin believes their current form can be compared to their opponents' start last season and that the Gunners shouldn't be considered out of the title race. With the competition, a fresh set of challenge is set to be faced by Arsene Wenger, who will have to manage the fixture crunch carefully as the season progresses.

"Teams like Leicester and Chelsea, they didn't have any midweek games [when they won the Premier League] so obviously players will get more rest and just play at the weekend".

The Hard Tackle, therefore, predicts a hard-fought 1-0 win for the North London outfit to kickstart their Europa League campaign on a positive note.
