After a 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Mikel Arteta will look to seal top spot in the group of the Europa League as his team comes up against FC Zurich at the Emirates saying that ‘We missed the chance in Holland last week and Thursday is the last opportunity to achieve our goal’.
With what you could call a mini goal drought, Arteta was asked if Gabriel Jesus needs to make any adjustments to which he said, ‘If he makes three assists in a game I don’t think he has to make any adjustments. Clearer very happy with the Brazilian attacker it will be interesting to see if he goes with Jesus or Eddie Nketia for the game.
FC Zurich midfielder, Bledian Krasniqi remains optimistic ahead of Thursday night saying ‘The game against Arsenal is of course a big highlight for us. But we don’t want to go out there and hide, we want to get the best out of it with courage and aggressiveness’.
With squad rotation a big factor for Arsenal it will be interesting to see if returning players like Mohammed Elneny and Oleksandr Zinchenko will get minutes tonight with Arteta saying ‘They are at different stages’.
