Wenger ridicules theories over Thursday night football

Outside the Emirates Stadium

Wenger has included Chile forward Sanchez in his squad for Thursday's game.

The Gunners are in the competition by virtue of their fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season, the first time that the club have finished outside of the top four in Wenger's 21-year tenure. A 3-0 home victory over Milan in 2012 failed to overturn the horrendous 4-0 clobbering at the San Siro a fortnight earlier.

England midfielder Wilshere may also feature on Thursday, for what would be his first Arsenal appearance in more than a year. He was injured so was a bit behind the other players, but now he is getting better and better.

Petr Cech, Laurent Koscielny, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka joined Ozil in missing out on training ahead of the match on Wednesday.

Carnival Cruise Line Planning to Help Caribbean Islands Devastated by Irma
Ares Management Llc increased New Mountain Finance Corp (NMFC) stake by 11.57% reported in 2016Q4 SEC filing. Vanguard Group lifted its holdings in stocks of Royal Caribbean Cruises by 4.1% through out the 2nd period.

Wilshere, who is yet to agree to a new deal at Arsenal, was linked to several clubs around Europe in the summer. "So as I said to the boss, our story was not finished, so everybody was pleased with that".

'There are some clubs paying £100m and £200m on players but I do not think that's the philosophy.

"The club gave me a lot and I [wanted to] give it back, and I still want to improve again and again and win some more trophies for the club".

Arsenal travel to face the champions at Stamford Bridge less than three days after playing in the Europa League.

In July 2016, the singer delayed her Unbreakable tour, citing that her and her husband were planning their family. The singer wrote in the caption, "Hey u guys". "I thought it was important that you be the first to know".

With the French striker on the cusp of reaching 100 goals for Arsenal it was seen as good enough a reason to have him as a rare figure sat alongside Arsene Wenger at top table to fulfil UEFA media stipulations.

'Yes. It's a good opportunity to show we can do it (juggle the Europa League with the Premier League),' Wenger said.

"You have to not get caught in your mind with preconceived ideas, football is down to how you perform on the day".

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

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'No regrets over Philippe Coutinho omission'

Arsenal will kick start their Europa League campaign against German side FC Koln at the Emirates Stadium.
