Arsenal make a trip to the Jamtkraft Arena to lock horns with Oestersunds for the first leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie on Thursday night as they look to return to winning ways.

The Gunners’ aim for a top-four finish in the Premier League suffered a huge blow after they went down to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, no thanks to Harry Kane’s lone strike.

They qualified for this stage of the competition after finishing on the top of the Group H with 13 points and racked in 13 goals.

They will leave no stone unturned in their quest to secure the Europa League title which will secure their place in the Champions League next season.
