Arsene Wenger speaks about Europa League issues ahead of Chelsea clash

Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey will both be rested for Arsenal's Europa League opener against Cologne on Thursday, although manager Arsene Wenger hinted he will use a strong squad for the game. He has been injured at the start of the season so he was a bit behind the others.

Despite steering Arsenal to the 2000 UEFA Cup Final - lost on penalties to Galatasaray - and the Champions League final against Barcelona in 2006, Wenger has thus far drawn a blank in Europe. Players knew that we had to give our 100% against Bournemouth because we had to win no matter what.

His "obvious" ability, even in a press conference, became obvious when his first 79-word answer contained the word "obviously" three times.

"On the injury front we have no big problems, a few players have some response to the fact they played two worldwide games like Ozil and Ramsey, who are rested completely. When you play Wednesday-Saturday it's similar to Thursday-Sunday".

Despite injuries, form and competition for places all playing a role in denting that 2012 vision of the future, it wasn't until this summer when that group was finally broken up for good.

The Gunners have endured a mixed start to the Premier League season following two victories and two losses to leave Arsene Wenger's side in mid-table.

"Every game is an opportunity for him, and this season is a good opportunity for him". Arsenal my have had a battle-hardened core of English veterans, but Wenger nearly immediately brought with him a change of focus toward continental players and methods that saw careers extended and trophies lifted.

Manchester United won the competition in May and returned to the Champions League despite finishing sixth in the Premier League table and many believe Arsenal should take the competition seriously.

But Wenger looks likely to rest several of his big-name players for the match against the Bundesliga side.

However, the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Hector Bellerin were all involved in the first team training session at London Colney, suggesting that they are likely to be involved in some capacity.

The Hard Tackle, therefore, predicts a hard-fought 1-0 win for the North London outfit to kickstart their Europa League campaign on a positive note.
