Arsenal vs. BATE Borisov - Football Match Report

When the two sides met in the group stages of last seasons' Europa League, Arsenal won by a 10-2 margin - including a 6-0 thumping at the Emirates.

But it was Wenger who was in charge when the German World Cup victor signed that long-term deal last season, so if Ozil is in a comfort zone, then it's his former manager who must take a lot of the blame.

The Arsenal Supporters Trust have written an open letter to UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, criticising the North London side's early kick-off time for this evening's Europa League tie against BATE Borisov.

'When you can train with regularity, consistency, you can help us after in the games. We're trying to produce on the pitch what we're doing on the training ground. "I think we need every player, and playing Mesut was important and positive".

'The key is in his hand.

"He's been working very well this week". But he needs to be consistent, to be available for training, for the matches.

Asked whether the team are missing out by not being in the Champions League, Koscielny told reporters: "No, no".

Increasingly we are seeing TV companies dictate the kick off time and the actual match going fan becoming more and more a secondary consideration but this forthcoming UEFA league match takes things to an unprecedented new level.

Ozil, 30, played the full 90 minutes for the first time since December.

The Wales worldwide has had a habit of scoring important goals in big matches in his Gunners career, and Emery will be hoping that he has saved one more for the Emirates Stadium on Thursday evening.

'I know if I make a run he'll be able to find me because he's got the vision to spot it, so I just have to make it easier and try to make a run so that he can play the ball for me'.
