Arsene Wenger is under increasing pressure to ensure Arsenal qualify for the Champions League next season as the club consider an early decision over his future.
Currently sixth on the log in the Premier League, the Gunners’ best bet would be to qualify for Europe’s top league by winning the Europa League.
And their journey continues in Sweden tonight where they face Ostersunds at 8pm.
With the club apparently considering his future, Wenger’s job just got even more difficult with record-signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being Cup-tied after playing for Borussia Dortmund in the tournament already.
On top of that, August recruit Alexandre Lacazette has been sidelined after emergency knee surgery on Tuesday night leaving them with only one fit striker - Danny Welbeck.
