Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he will not rest any of his key players when we face Swedish side Ostersund in the round of 32 of the Europa clash on Thursday.
The Gunners defeat in the Premier League against Tottenham over the weekend means our best chance of qualifying for the Champions League is by winning the Europa League.
We are currently seven points adrift of Tottenham, with only 11 games left in the season. The Gunners fought toe to toe with Spurs in the first half and were unlucky to have gone into the break without anything to show for their efforts.
Wenger revealed that he would fielded a competitive team against the Swedish club, stressing that he need to win their next game on the back of an away record, which is the worst that has ever been under his stewardship.
“I would have anyway gone for it, especially as we have no game between the two matches,” Wenger said, before admitting that a freer schedule only further allows that, as quoted by the Independent. “I will play the normal team because it is one of the opportunities we have especially because we don’t play in the FA Cup.
“We have to win the next game. Our record since I’ve been at Arsenal is one of the worst away from home. Certainly the worst since I’m in England. That doesn’t work, we have to play much better away from home and make superior results if we want to have a chance to come back.”
