Arsenal have won of all its game in the competition this season. but in the Premier League, our fortunes have been different, we have lost three league games already this season, leaving us sixth on the league table.

“For us it’s a trophy to potentially win. We want to do well in all the competitions,” reports the Daily Star.
“In six days this week we play Europa League, the Premier League and the League Cup – we want to fight in every competition. It’s one of the routes but it’s not the only one for us.”

Personally, I think Arsenal have enough quality to win the Europa League and it will be a good idea to take it seriously. We also have the quality to field a two different squads strong enough to challenge for both the cup competition and the Premier League, so there shouldn’t be any fear of falling behind our rivals on the league table.
