The Gunners begin their Europa League campaign against the Swiss champions.
Mikel Arteta addressed a press conference shortly after touching down in Switzerland last night in anticipation of tonight’s Europa League group stage game against FC Zurich.
Arteta said, “We don’t have that many players available, unfortunately, with the injuries we’ve picked up in the last two weeks. This is a competition that we want to take very seriously against an opponent that is going to make life difficult for us. We want to start the competition the right way and maintain our momentum. “
Last weekend, the Red Devils annihilated the Arteta side, ending the latter’s five-game winning streak. Arsenal lost 3-1 to Manchester United. But today they’re hoping to bounce back with a win.
