Europa League Preview

Arsenal and Everton already know their Europa League fates, as they prepare for their latest clashes.

Arsenal travel to Cologne, already assured of their place in the knockout phase, but manager Arsene Wenger insists he will be playing an experienced side in the game.

“You will see a very experienced team and see that every player has a big experience in the Premier League,” said the Arsenal boss.

Everton interim boss David Unsworth, insists he is just continuing his job as the club continue to look for Ronald Koeman’s replacement.

“We just continue to the next game as passionately as from the start,” he said.

“Everything I do from when I get up in the morning to when I go to bed at night is about Everton.”
