Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke thinks Unai Emery can win Champions League

ST ALBANS ENGLAND- AUGUST 29

ST ALBANS ENGLAND- AUGUST 29

It's for that, when I arrived here, I asked only for that from the cook.

Celtic have been handed a reunion with Rosenborg, having already faced them in the Champions League this season, and Rangers will meet Villarreal.

As for Chelsea, in their first foray into the second-tier competition since winning it in 2013, they face PAOK, BATE Borisov, and MOL Vidi.

The Gunners under Unai Emery will be facing two of last season's Champions League participant Sporting Lisbon, Qarabag and Ukrainian side Vorskla. I don't think they're as bad as what they showed previous year but he's got a lot of work to do with them.

The commitment is very good from each player and for that I am happy, said Emery.

Ozil's absence was due to illness, according to Emery - who is seeking improvement from the 29-year-old and his entire Arsenal squad ahead of Sunday's trip to Cardiff City.

Former Paris Saint-Germain coach Emery believes he has identified where Arsenal need to improve in order to correct their poor away form, calling on his players to keep hold of possession rather than try to force the issue. That and Unai Emery's philosophy and style are coming together, and they have a great chance to show that against Cardiff.

Arsenal also average more goals per game with Lacazette starting in the Premier League than without him, while they also have a much higher win percentage. The Irish midfielder has started the last two matches since making the switch from league rivals Bournemouth earlier this month and his influence is only expected to grow as he gets used to his new surroundings. "But in my career I'm not stopping for the news when it isn't true".

"I want to continue that in the next match this Sunday against Cardiff, a different game, but just to continue our momentum".

Arsenal discovered their Europa League fate moments before Emery's press conference to preview the Cardiff game. Whether Ozil was poorly or not going into the game against West Ham, it's clear his new manager wants a lot more.
