Chelsea, Arsenal face tricky opponents in their respective Europa League groups

Share

For all his experience and brilliance, big Petr is ageing and has so far failed to adapt to Unai Emery's style of playing from the back.

"Aaron is a top player and I've always liked him".

Arsenal, on the other hand, have probably the worst recent away form of any team in the country!

Arsenal sits in ninth in the Premier League table with only three points after losses to Chelsea and Manchester City. We can forget about seeing our nominal captain Laurent Koscielny for a few months, and I'm sure we've all forgotten Carl Jenkinson who has only played one game for us in the last two seasons.

Asked if he has demanded more from Ozil when it comes to his defensive work rate, Emery said that doesn't just apply to the German.

"We started on Tuesday and every day he has been training with the group".

Jackson said he doesn't know yet if either of the quarterbacks will play in next week's exhibition finale against Detroit. He has two interceptions and two lost fumbles in preseason losses to the New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns .

"It's amusing, because I spoke to the Rosenborg captain [Mike Jensen] on the pitch in Trondheim after we played them and he said "Congratulations, maybe see you next year again", said Celtic manager Rodgers. Neil Warnock's men are likely to sit deep and hit Arsenal on the counter should they get an opportunity to do so, hence, a victory against them will require Arsenal to be creative in the final third.

"I've been pleased with that, but if you go higher, you've got to take your chances".

To help with that quest, Emery is expected to have playmaker Mesut Ozil to call upon for the match.

And he said Ozil won't be given any special treatment during the break.

It is not the only change made to the players' routines, with more competitive training sessions introduced, as well as gym equipment near training pitches in order to mix cardiovascular and strength training. "It's a great opportunity to go into the worldwide break with another win under our belts and hopefully then we can build when we come back and really kick on".
