EPL: Wenger speaks on his future at Arsenal

Arsenal couldn't afford Evans admits Wenger

Arsenal host Ostersunds in the return leg of the Europa League tie next week before the League Cup final against City at Wembley on February 25.

Ostersunds FK will be the 124th different opponent that Arsene Wenger has faced as manager of Arsenal in all competitions. We have no game on the weekend [Arsenal having been knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round] so that was an easier decision.

Arsenal's best hope of qualifying for next season's Champions League may come by winning the Europa League this season. "Today I would say certainly he will not be available for the second game against Ostersunds".

"Especially because, for example, he played Dortmund, Dortmund has been reversed in the Europa League and he can not play".

Although his side face a mighty battle against the north Londoners, the Englishman insists that if they aren't prepared for the conditions that accompany a Swedish winter his side will seek to take advantage.

India says Pakistan 'will pay' after Kashmir army camp attack
Udhampur: The Indian Army on Wednesday claimed that Pakistan Army played a key role in planning attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. The dad of a soldier that was killed in the attack declared that his son "died serving his nation", reports Express.co.uk.

- In fact, it is just the second match in which Ostersunds have failed to score in this seasons Europa League, and the first time they have failed to do so at home.

"We didn't show ourselves as well as we would like".

Ken Sema's well-struck free-kick was straight at Ospina, while Samuel Mensah fired a shot wide as Ostersunds looked to get back into the game before the interval.

Potter backed Arsenal to go far in this competition.

But then again, Ostersunds will have the one thing that the Gunners tend to lack in away matches, they will have fight, they will have grit, they will have a desire to win.

Germany: Martin Schulz steps down as SPD head
The party's 464,000 party members will vote in a postal ballot on the deal, with the results expected to be announced on March 2. Schulz has also been criticized by fellow SPD politician and current Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel for pursuing the post.

"I think we adapted quite well to the [artificial] pitch".

Ostersunds, who have been led to three promotions since 2010 under Englishman Graham Potter, had the opportunity for a stoppage-time tonic, only for Pettersson's tired penalty to be clutched by Arsenal stopper David Ospina.

"For me [the penalty save] was very important, to not tarnish our performance tonight", he reflected. "We were a bit too easy in that situation [conceding the penalty] and it would have left a bitter taste".

To many, the likes of Mesut Özil, Shkodran Mustafi or even Nacho Monreal might have seemed like sensible choices to lead the team out in Sweden.
