EPL: Lacazette worries about Arsenal team after 2-1 win at Huddersfield

Arsenal news Gilberto Silva Mesut Ozil

After losing their first two league games to champions Manchester City and Chelsea, Unai Emery's reign as Arsenal manager went smoothly and they did not taste defeat again until December 16 - a run of 22 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

Michael Owen is tipping Arsenal to draw or lose their Europa League clash with BATE Borisov on Thursday night.

Unai Emery has brought a strong squad for the game against Bate Borisov.

"We are here with the players who I think are okay to play", the Gunners head coach told a news conference.

"For me the most important area is the defence because we have the quality in the front line". If we ask if it's easy or hard for us, then I think it's hard, but we can.

Ozil, who missed the Premier League win over Huddersfield through illness, trained with the rest of the squad this week. On game 26 we are on our way.

Arsenal have more than one way of qualifying for the top four, the Premier League as well as winning the UEFA Europa League. We have two ways now, one is the Europa League, and to win it is very hard. They picked up five points against the other teams in the group, so it really was Arsenal that prevented their progress.

Emery will still want to give opportunities to his younger crop of players, but Ozil's wage packet and apparent lack of desire to leave means there is more on Arsenal to achieve Champions League action next season. It is evident that getting back to the top tier of European competitions is the Gunners primary target for this season.

From this, it is clear that the focus of the club is to get back into Europe's elite competition which has evaded them for the past two seasons and was one of the major reasons behind the departure of long-serving ex-manager Arsene Wenger.

Denis Suarez will have to be patient for his first league start as an Arsenal player, with the star named on the bench for the match against Huddersfield.
