"I think for that we have to respect all teams in all competitions to give all games 100%".

ARSENAL star Stephan Lichtsteiner is hungry to bring Champions League football back to his new club after the competition returned in style this week.

And the 34-year-old hopes this will Arsenal's last season in Europe's second-tier competition, which they reached the semi-finals of last term.

Now, though, they must switch their focus to the Europa League and the visit of Ukrainian outfit Vorskla to the Emirates on Thursday.

The Blues have made a ideal start in the Premier League under Maurizio Sarri and will want to go as far in the competition as possible, with a Champions League place next season on offer for the winners should they miss out on the top four once more. Tomorrow is the Europa League, Sunday is Premier League, then it's Carabao Cup and then we're going to play in FA Cup.

Balancing the squad is crucial though and plenty of rotation is likely during the group stages of Arsenal's Europa League campaign and Emery must use the opportunity to hand chances to this Gunners trio. In my career, the ambition is very important for continuing to improve and continuing to achieve the objectives in my career personally and with the team.

While four successive home matches is rare, during the 1987-88 season under George Graham the Gazette was present at all seven consecutive Highbury home games between February 13 1988 and March 19, 1988.

Danny Welbeck talks! "I think it was a convincing win, though it was hard in the first half, because they had a gameplan to sit back and make it hard".

"I'm in the past year of the contract, so I guess it depends on my performances, the way I play and the way I stay fit throughout the season, then we'll see what happens next", Cech is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.

Our midfield must surely have Elneny in there and will Emery give Torreira his first start as well, although he could be replaced when we have got a good lead.

Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno is poised to make his debut tonight.
