Arsenal is currently in Ukraine for their UEFA Europa League encounter with Vorskla and Unai Emery will be using many youngsters because he has rested his star players for the North London Derby. The gunners will be hoping to get a win against the Ukrainian side because they don’t want to end their unbeaten run today but it will probably be interesting to see if Arsenal will get the three points from Vorskla.
The Arsenal squad arrived in Ukraine last night and Unai Emery along Henrikh Mkhitaryan faced the press for the pre-match press conference where they talked about a number of matters including why he selected many youngsters in his squad. The Arsenal boss says that the UEFA Europa League is important to him and that he believes that they had to give a chance to the youngsters.
“When there are matches like Thursday’s in a very big week for us, where we are playing a lot of matches, we have players to cover here. We need to give them chances.” Unai Emery told Arsenal.com.
“The Europa League is very important for us and it’s very important for us to win on Thursday and come first in this group. The young players are going to have chances.”
Arsenal however did also include some senior players in the squad like Mohamed Elneny, Aaron Ramsey and Petr Cech but it’s probably because they have not been getting enough playing time this season. It seems Aaron Ramsey has really lost the favour of Unai Emery because he is no longer starting in the Premier League nowadays.
Arsenal fans don’t care much about this game but they however don’t want Vorskla to end their unbeaten run.
