The UEFA Europa League group stage draw was made today and the gunners have been put in a group which Arsenal fans can see as fair because there aren’t any threatening teams in it.
Arsenal finished in the sixth position on the Premier League table last season and they will be participating in the UEFA Europa League even though the fans hate it but they will have to keep up with Thursday football for this season as they hope to finish in a Uefa Champions League spot on the EPL table this season.
Arsenal is in Europa League group E and here are the teams in it.
Arsenal, Sporting Lisbon, Qarabag, FK Vorskla
As you can see, the only team that will likely give the gunners a big problem in the group stage matches is Sporting Lisbon because it is one of the best clubs in Portugal but Unai Emery will be hoping that his squad can win all their matches so that it could be used as a morale booster in their quest into joining the Premier League top four again.
The gunners are taking part in the UEFA Europa League for the second consecutive time and they almost reached the finals last season but they got eliminated from it by Atletico Madrid in the semi finals but they will be hoping to finally win it this season so that they could still qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League if they don’t finish in the Premier League top four this season.
It is going to be an interesting season for the gunners and everyone will be looking forward to seeing how Arsenal perform in all competitions because they are under a new manager. Unai Emery has won the UEFA Europa League three times when he was still the manager of Sevilla.
