Arsenal should use Europa League to give chances to young talent

  • Passionate Bellerin insists Arsenal focused on Cologne and Europa League, not Chelsea

While Chelsea have an extra two days to prepare for the contest, Wenger has told his players he does not expect it to make a big difference.

Wilshere last played for Arsenal against Watford in August previous year and hasn't featured at the Emirates since a 4-0 win over Aston Villa in May 2016, but he is set to start as Arsenal begin their Europa League campaign against FC Köln.

"There was always a huge pressure on him to come back".

Nacho Monreal could also be given a rest ahead of Chelsea so Rob Holding may come in to the side but Shkodran Mustafi could retain his place as he looks to get back to his best following a hard start to the season.

For the first time since Arsène Wenger took over at the club, the Gunners will be competing outside of the Champions League, after finishing fifth in last season's Premier League.

"As a top club you are expected to play two-three times a week so we have to be able to cope with that".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho relaxed about players' futures at the club
Marouane Fellaini is also out of contract next summer, with United having invoked the extension clause in his deal in January. Mourinho said, as per reports from ESPN . "All the other players are under the club control until end of the 2018-19 season.


However, the Arsenal boss only listed Ozil and Ramsey among those who will be completely left out of his squad for Thursday.

"This is a different competition and we want to win every competition we play in, but we don't calculate that this is the best way to the Champions League qualification".

Asked whether Wilshere will start against the Germans, he said: "I don't give the team out today - I will give it out tomorrow". "Every game is an opportunity for him and this season is a good opportunity for him as well". The prize of winning the Europa League is a place in next season's Champions League, so there is a chance that this may be the Gunners best bet of getting back among Europe's elite sides.

In the attacking third, the likes of Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez will probably get the nod to start behind Olivier Giroud.

"No", he said. "The disappointment for not finishing in the top four was there, of course, but unfortunately we were one point short". It's a competition that we know we can win and we're going to go fight as much as in the other competitions to do it.

Sunday's Premier League trip to Stamford Bridge could determine whether Bellerin is right to say that Arsenal can win the Premier League title.
