Arsenal will field their strongest team says Wenger

Arsene Wenger prepared to name strongest Arsenal team in Europa League knockouts.

Arsenal will field a strong team in Thursday’s Europa League trip to Ostersund. 

After their FA Cup defence at an end Arsene Wenger says he will not rest players for the first leg of Arsenal’s Europa League tie with Ostersund on Thursday. The Gunners will be heading to Sweden for the last-32 clash off the back of a damaging 1-0 defeat to their north London rivals Tottenham on Saturday, which has left them seven points adrift of the Premier League top four.
Arsenal are already out of title race and were knocked out of FA Cup in the 5th round and have no domestic matches until EFL Cup final.
Wenger said:

“I would have anyway gone for it, especially as we have no game between the two matches,”

“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. There is no reason why I should rest players.”

“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.”
