Emirates Stadium

I must say we have to see it in a way that it's an opportunity we want to take. "Anyway, on top of that, what will decide the crowd's attitude is the quality of our game", Wenger said.

The 29-year-old was then asked whether he thinks Arsenal have turned their attention away from the Premier League and exclusively to the Europa League like United did last season. "I have not decided if he will start or not yet, but he's available and ready to start".

"I think always you judge a team by the way they come out of a crisis". Our concern is the performance and the crowd will be behind us.


As the last Premier League club left in the competition, Arsenal are now the favorites in England to take the title, but Wenger didn't want his players to get ahead of themselves. He got the winning goal against Olympique Lyonnais in the last round of the competition, and also hit the victor against Rostov to secure all three points in their previous Russian Premier League clash.

I have no real problem with that as the Frenchman was talking about not getting ahead of ourselves and taking this very important competition one step at a time.

However the 29-year-old Armenian - who lifted the trophy with Jose Mourinho's Manchester United last season by beating Ajax in the final - is not taking anything for granted against manager Viktor Goncharenko's side. "We are going to face a very good team with very good experience".


With the only route into the Champions League in 2018/19 available if the London side win the Europa League, continuing to produce their best form against the Russian visitors will be key in the English capital.

Wenger has repeatedly been the subject of calls for him to leave from the stands, but he is unconcerned by the prospect of the atmosphere affecting his team's performance in the first leg against CSKA before heading to Russian Federation. But Wenger said he hopes that will not be any issue for the travelling supporters for either leg. "For me this tie is 50/50".
