Mesut Ozil appears to be in high spirits after being dropped by Unai Emery for Arsenal's Europa League clash against BATE Borisov on Thursday evening.

"That is me", he said, explaining his antics.

Then our next league game isn't until the 24th of February where we host Southampton at The Emirates. He has given youngsters like Joe Willock and Emile Smith-Rowe the chance to shine, but he has surrounded those starlets with enough quality and experience to still win games. With the FA Cup taking place this weekend it means we only have Europa League to worry about (twice).

"If we ask is it hard for us, I think it's hard, but we can".

Cech is urging his team to step up a gear after a canter through the group stage. We were working well.

"We struggled every minute of the 90", Emery said.

Attack: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back in contention after recovering from illness that kept him out of Arsenal's win over Huddersfield so I expect he'll be recalled up front.

More defensive lapses, though, and Arsenal's hopes of a top-four finish could be in serious danger. Winning this competition is potentially Arsenal's best route to Champions League qualification, so I expect Emery to pick a strong line-up here. "But we know it's not easy".

"At the moment there is one point difference between United and us".

Socceroos midfielder Mooy played a full game as Huddersfield, rock bottom of the Premier League, offered little resistance. "The big challenge is thinking only about the next match, improving individually and collectively, creating a big mentality for us".

From this, it is clear that the focus of the club is to get back into Europe's elite competition which has evaded them for the past two seasons and was one of the major reasons behind the departure of long-serving ex-manager Arsene Wenger.

A Nigerian professional footballer, Alex Iwobi, who plays as a forward for Arsenal, contributed to the sinking of Huddersfield in Saturday's encounter.
