Arsenal to face Sporting Lisbon in Europa League

Arsenal has a packed schedule after the worldwide break at the start of September, playing four matches in nine days that include Premier League, League Cup and Europa League fixtures.

The Gunners have been drawn with Sporting Lisbon, Ukrainian side Vorskla and Azeri champions Qarabag in Group E.

But CAS said the situation had improved since USA hedge fund Elliott Management took control of the indebted club from Chinese businessman Li Yonghong and promised to inject 50 million euros ($58.27 million) to help stabilise its finances.

"I am very, very happy firstly with the three points but then also how the team worked to win this match and how we finished the last few minutes".

He added: "When you play two matches in a week, you have more time to prepare for them, to prepare the players physically".

"It's fantastic for the supporters and we'll go into the games full of confidence and belief that we can go and get the right results to progress".


'It is a standard procedure for UEFA to send letters of support to associations, clubs or embassies in order to obtain visas for players in order to be able to travel to another country and play in UEFA competition matches'.

"We want to do the high pressing against the opposition". Mikhail Gordeychuk will be looked on to score for BATE while former Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb continues to play a role at the age of 37. Emery is taking preparations for the 1.30pm kick-off so seriously that he has even banned his players from drinking fruit juice.

"I think the lads have given everything they can and I've been quite pleased with the performances".

Speaking at this afternoon's (Friday) press conference, the Spaniard revealed: "I like fruit a lot and I like fruit juice".

"It's down to me a bit more than them".

Asked whether he felt Ozil would play in the Welsh capital, Warnock jokingly replied: "I've got enough worries. They prefer their orange juice fresh".
