Following the UEFA Europa League tie with Ostersund this week, Arsenal Boss admits he will not rest players.
The Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham leaves Arsenal 27 points behind of Premier League leaders Manchester City. The Gunners who booked a place by getting 2-1 victory over Chelsea in second leg will face The Blues in Carabao Cup final.
Arsenal can still make their way into Champions League with winning the Europa League. The journey continues when they travel to Sweden to face Ostersund.
Arsene Wenger have made it clear that Arsenal’s first-team will feature against Ostresund throughout both the legs.
“I would have anyway gone for it, especially as we have no game between the two matches,” said the Arsenal manager.
“I will play the normal team because it is one of the opportunities we have especially because we don’t play in the FA Cup. There is no reason why I should rest players.”
The Boss also desperate to improve the Arsenal’s away record, “We have to win the next game,” he said. “Our record since I’ve been at Arsenal is one of the worst away from home. Certainly, the worst since I’m in England.
“That doesn’t work, we have to play much better away from home and make superior results if we want to have a chance to come back.”
