Arsenal will on Thursday continue their UEFA Europa League campaign when they host Slavia Prague at the Emirates Stadium and this will be a must win game for them as winning this competition might be their best chance of going back to the UEFA Champions League. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta might have received a boost ahead of this game.
Arsenal’s recent game in the Premier League saw them get beaten three nil by a Liverpool team and despite The Champions having been the better side, most believe that the North Londoners would have put on a better performance if some of their players that missed had been available for selection. Arsenal was missing first team players such as Granit Xhaka, David Luiz, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka.
Arsenal have received good news ahead of their game against Slavia Prague as the latest training video by the club has confirmed that Emile Smith Rowe, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka took part in these last sessions that are preparing for this upcoming UEFA Europa League. Granit Xhaka was greatly missed in their game against Liverpool as the gunners struggled to get a hold of the midfield hence The Reds then having all the free space to punish Mikel Arteta’s side.
Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe have been among Arsenal’s best players since January as they have been one of those that have benefited most from Mikel Arteta changing to a simplistic 4-2-3-1 formation. So the return of Saka and Smith Rowe will be a big morale booster for the Arsenal squad and the supporters.
