They'll be keen to make up for that disappointment this time around and they have serial Europa League victor Unai Emery at the helm so they should be confident of putting a good run together in the competition.

Arsenal ultimately came close to winning the UEFA Europa League last season and this season's competition has started again.

This year's Europa League group stage draw will take place on August 31 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, one day after the draw for the Champions League.

A semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid prevented the Gunners from going all the way in the Europa League but they are now being managed by someone who has surpassed that final hurdle.


"If you win the game 1-0 or 2-0 you probably go through to the final and maybe win the final."
The new competition will make it possible for such clubs to participate in a European tournament without filling up the Europa League, as was initially discussed.

Due to bitter diplomatic relations (political tension) between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the 29-year-old could face difficulties trying to get into Baku- even with the Arsenal team.

The governing body said in a statement: 'It is a standard procedure for UEFA to send letters of support to associations, clubs or embassies in order to obtain visas for players in order to be able to travel to another country and play in UEFA matches'.

UEFA are prepared to help Mkhitaryan feature in Azerbaijan, though it's a doubt whether exceptions will be made.
