Alexandre Lacazette Ready To Start Vs CSKA Moscow

Alexandre Lacazette Ready To Start Vs CSKA Moscow

That is the mindset that Arsene Wenger must instil into his team.

Lacazette came off the bench in the 3-0 win over Stoke on Sunday for his first game since early February and managed to score a penalty at the death.

Gilberto Silva was part of the Arsenal side that went unbeaten during the 2003-04 season on their way to winning the Premier League.

Real Madrid are said to be planning a big squad clear out this summer, and Arsenal want to explore the chance to lure Ceballos to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that goalkeeper Petr Cech is available for Thursday's Europa League clash with CSKA Moscow.

"Russian teams have a good football culture".

I'm not Gonzalo Higuain's biggest fan but he does come up with big goals, not always at worldwide level but certainly for his club, which is why they spent so much money bringing him in from Napoli, and I think he can be decisive in a classic Juve display.

Also happening Tuesday, President Trump will host the leaders of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania at the White House. Both sides said they haven't started preparations for the visit.

Club great Ian Wright has commended Arsenal fans for the "positive step" of staying away from matches and Wenger accepts slumping attendances are a worrying trend, albeit one he believes will soon end.

Wenger has repeatedly been the subject of calls for him to leave from the stands, but he is unconcerned by the prospect of the atmosphere affecting his team's performance in the first leg against CSKA before heading to Russian Federation.

At a press conference, Wenger told reporters: "Lacazette is ready to start, yes".

"We have to see it, in a way, as an opportunity we want to take and keep the priorities right and of course focus on how well we play together, how we want to play".

"I think when something is at stake the crowd is always behind us".

The acclaimed BT Sport app will also carry an Arsenal v CSKA Moscow live stream from this time onwards, with both online platforms showing the game on the revolutionary enhanced video player.

Wenger said: "Honestly, nobody knows what is going on and it looks more to be diplomatic relations that are a bit complicated".
