Arsenal get their Europa League campaign under way on Thursday by hosting Germany's Cologne in Group H (live on BT Sport 2, 8.05pm kick-off).

For all Arsenal's struggles to make an impact on the Champions League in recent years, they will still miss not being a part of it this season. There was always a huge pressure on him to come back as quickly...

He said; "It was a good start, a flawless start for us".

Arsene Wenger has hinted that Jack Wilshere will feature for Arsenal against Koln in the Europa League.

The Gunners take on the Bundesliga side at the Emirates, just three days before the trip to London rivals, Chelsea.

"Now we have to continue, we have to rest tomorrow and then to start to think about the next game, a strong game, a tough game against Arsenal (on Sunday)".

"His game, you have certainly seen the video of him when we played against Barcelona, his game is about that", Wenger said, highlighting a particularly impressive display against the Catalan giants in 2011. "When you play Wednesday-Saturday it's similar to Thursday-Sunday".

"It's true that I was close to leaving the club as I said I wanted to play but [I stayed] after a big reflection with family and close friends".

Manchester United won the competition in May and returned to the Champions League despite finishing sixth in the Premier League table and many believe Arsenal should take the competition seriously.

Arsenal are used to juggling midweek fixtures with weekend ones, with the only difference being that they are in the Europa League rather than the Champions League this term.

"No", he said. "The disappointment for not finishing in the top four was there, of course, but unfortunately we were one point short". What is clear is that in the Arsenal squad there are a number of notable players who are still waiting to start a game this season, including Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott. It's a competition that we know we can win and we're going to go fight as much as in the other competitions to do it.
