Arsenal v Koln - Probable lineups

Hector Bellerin backs Lacazette for Arsenal

"I think the best way to do it is through the Premier League", Wenger told a news conference before Arsenal host Cologne in their Europa League opener on Thursday.

"We are very focused on the Europa League and want to go and win it".

"He needs a little burst to get away from people because he can turn the game forward, and if you can turn the game forward you need your legs to get you out of pressure and that will come back - it is coming back in training as well". He has been injured at the start of the season so he was a bit behind the others.

Francis Coquelin, meanwhile, is out for three weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury in the victory over Bournemouth last time out.

If Arsenal fail to perform, Wenger will not be blaming the Cologne game - for which Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey will be rested - as he feels there is enough time to recover.

"It is a good opportunity to show we can cope", Wenger said.

Asked whether Wilshere will start against the Germans, he said: "I don't give the team out today - I will give it out tomorrow". Latvian striker Artjoms Rudnevs is the only player the Koln boss does not have at his disposal ahead of the trip to Emirates on Thursday, missing out due to illness.

Canelo vs. GGG: Alvarez says fight with Golovkin was never in doubt

Jimmy Nelson to miss remainder of 2017 season
Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon. There's some talent and experience in that group, but losing Nelson really tightens that rotation up.

"Every game is an opportunity for him, and this season is a good opportunity for him".

Laurent Koscielny is suspended after being sent off during our Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich last season so Per Mertesacker is set for a recall in defence.

He presumably had the Premier League in mind - however unlikely that may seem - but the Frenchman will be painfully aware of the lack of European silverware in Arsenal's trophy cabinet.

"It's true that I was close to leaving the club as I said I wanted to play but [I stayed] after a big reflection with family and close friends".

Manchester United won the Europa League last season to qualify for this year's Champions League.

In the attacking third, the likes of Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez will probably get the nod to start behind Olivier Giroud.

"We made 75 points a year ago and overall I am humble enough to be happy enough to win every single competition".
