Europa League: Chelsea and Arsenal handed relatively easy groups

Lucas Moura endured a difficult spell at PSG under Unai Emery

Defensively, Arsenal have been below par with their back four seemingly incapable of maintaining a solid shape whilst trying to withstand a high press, the team's attack has also been one-dimensional with the Gunners nearly always opting to attack from the flanks and throw in a cross, or a cut back. Sporting recently underwent a player revolt and will be feeling the effects of having to sell some important players, such as goalkeeper Rui Patricio, who now plies his trade in the Premier League with Wolves.

Two clean sheets will their boost morale, but Warnock says it's important for the team to put away the chances that come their way this term.

The commitment is very good from each player and for that I am happy, said Emery. All players and everybody affiliated with Arsenal must strive to go far in this competition, as one missing piece can make the jigsaw look silly.

"You might have to give us a day or two to get up after such a setback".

Unai Emery's tenure began with back-to-back defeats against Manchester City (2-0) and Chelsea (3-2), but he believes progress is being made after his team came from behind to finish strongly against the Irons.

"We feel we are building something special here and these are the type of games we feel we all want to be part of".

He had been competing against rookie Sam Darnold and 39-year-old veteran Josh McCown for the starting job this summer. NY signed Bridgewater to a one-year, $6 million contract in March.

The first round of matches will be played on Thursday, Sep 20.

Newspaper reports claimed Ozil and Emery had been involved in a training ground bust-up, but the Arsenal manager told Sky Sports: Throughout my career I have respect for the media, for newspaper, radio, TV, but there are a lot of people in the media and at not every moment is the information real.

Arsenal take on Cardiff on Sunday at 1:30pm.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, ruled out for three months with knee ligament damage, and Aron Gunnarsson are both missing for Cardiff, while Junior Hoilett is a major doubt.

Junior Hoilett faces a late fitness test on a groin problem, while Aron Gunnarsson is rated doubtful with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, the Gunners remain without four players: defenders Sead Kolasinac, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Laurent Koscielny and Carl Jenkinson.
