Arsenal were the losing semi-finalists in the Europa League a year ago, but Vorskla Poltava manager Vasyl Sachko says his side are capable of getting a win.

If these young players can prove themselves across this sprawling tournament, it might even ease their path to the first-team squad, providing Chelsea with an answer to the problems posed in an era of clubs backed by the economies of entire nations.

"Now we're in the situation where we need to win the Europa League, so we're going to try to win the Europa League".

One man who looks set to get his chance is Switzerland captain Stephan Lichtsteiner, whose only playing time in a Gunners shirt so far was as a substitute in the Premier League opener against Manchester City.

ARSENAL face Vorskla in the Europa League on Thursday night - but who will Unai Emery select to start? "We are going to motivate our players to play well and give a good account of themselves".

Meanwhile, the likes of Rob Holding, Mohamed Elneny and Danny Welbeck are making a rare appearance in the starting lineup, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan returns to the side as well.

Emery will be without injured duo Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny for the match, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles is a doubt to feature.

Across London, Arsenal's aspirations in the Europa League look like having more of a short-term focus.

UNAI EMERY has enjoyed plenty of success in the Europa League but insists delivering domestically is the priority for Arsenal this season. In their first, they claimed only two points from six group stages matches, netting just four goals.

Arsenal reached the semi-finals of the competition last season before losing to Atletico Madrid, and are the overwhelming favourites to beat a team that finished third in the Ukrainian Premier League last season.

OM are very strong at home but without any fans behind them at the Stade Velodrome they could find life tougher against last season's German Cup winners.
