Arsenal ease to 3-0 victory in Sweden

Maybe the confidence is not at its highest because he has seen a competitor coming

The Gunners were surrounded by snow drifts and were playing on an unfamiliar synthetic pitch at the Jamtkraft Arena, but maintained their composure and clinched victory in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 clash.

The match will be coming just three days before the League Cup final.

Wenger spoke about the matter after the game, and it appears that he wants to select a full strength team for the clash. "Maybe we didn't push enough in the second half but overall we played a serious game, job done", he continued.

Laurent Koscielny and Jack Wilshere did not travel to Sweden, both players having Achilles injuries.

"After that we have as well to accept in our job that the future is the future but for me that's to win the next game".

But despite the silverware showdown at Wembley on Sunday, Mkhitaryan urged Wenger to help the north Londoners build some much-needed confidence before tackling City.

Wozniacki through to Qatar semis and keeps top ranking
She told Romanian TV channel Digi Sport: "That was very bad from her; I have never heard a number one talk like that". The spat overshadowed a relatively routine victory for the 27-year-old.

A 13th-minute opener from Nacho Monreal followed by an own-goal by home defender Sotirios Papagiannopoulos put the Premier League side firmly in control against the Swedish minnows and Mesut Ozil further strengthened their hand going into the second leg by netting before the hour. I think we can adapt.

Mario Balotelli scored twice, but 10-man OGC Nice blew a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 at home to Lokomotiv Moscow as Manuel Fernandes hit a hat-trick, while Valere Germain struck two goals as Olympique de Marseille cruised past SC Braga 3-0. We have to win in every game to get more confidence and to have better success.

"For me [the penalty save] was important, not to tarnish a little bit our performance tonight". "It was a hard start, we weren't ourselves, we were too deep, too short". He adapts slowly to the team.

"We will see", said the Frenchman. "We weren't ourselves", the Englishman said.

Ostersunds beat Hertha Berlin and drew with Athletic Bilbao en route to the knock-out stages of the Europa League and will fancy their chances against Arsenal. "What is in front of us is what we have to show until the end of the season".
