Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal were complacent in Europa League meeting with Ostersunds

Arsenal hosts Ostersund on Thursday in Leg 2 of their Round of 32 Europa League matchup at the Emirates Stadium in London. And, of course, the first leg was far from entertaining, despite the seemingly conclusive scoreline of 3-0. It was an embarrassing first half performance.

Mesut Özil and Aaron Ramsey are out with an illness and a groin injury, respectively, although both should be back soon after this match.

But despite going through to the next round of the Europa League, Arsenal fans aren't in a forgiving mood and want one player sold immediately following his display: Calum Chambers.

LINEUPS: None yet. They'll be here an hour before kickoff. "We are still in the competition because the English Premier League anything is possible".

Would this team be able to comfortably put us into the next round?

The other major wireless networks also promise a 5G network , but AT&T and is the first to announce an official rollout. The first three AT&T mobile 5G markets will be parts of Atlanta , Dallas and Waco in 2018, the company said today.

The Armenian moved to Arsenal from Manchester United is a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez in January, with Mkhitaryan already enjoying the "offensive football" Arsene Wenger preaches. Mainly, I expect to see Sead Kolasinac finally returned to a starting spot that has been so foolishly denied him, despite opportunities to get him back into the game.

Yes, Arsenal made it through but none of the teams also surviving to today's draw will fear drawing the Wenger boys judged on this latest shambolic display.

Wenger will review his position with the Arsenal board at the end of the season.

"At 2-0 we thought we had a chance".

The only positive Wilshere could be muster was that they progressed, and it's fair to say - other than Kolasinac's goal - that was all there was to clutch on to.
