The north London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League spot for the first time under Arsene Wenger.

While Chelsea have an extra two days to prepare for the contest, Wenger has told his players he does not expect it to make a big difference.

Chelsea endured a hard start to the life under Antonio Conte last season but eventually lifted the title in May.

The Billy Goats, as they are nicknamed, have faced Arsenal before in European competition, playing Bertie Mee's Arsenal in the semi-finals of the European Fairs Cup during the club's first double season in 1970/71.

"Obviously if we play well and we play our game and we are very focused on this Europa League, we want to go and win it, we are very ambitious and I am looking forward to the game tomorrow".

If he is injury-free, he will come back to his best.

He said: "The season before was not a good one for them [Chelsea]". 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. Manager Jose Mourinho made winning the competition a priority as United slipped to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League.

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.

Meanwhile, Manchester forked out £200m this summer and overall Premier League clubs spent over £1.4billion.

He was supposed to be Arsenal's saviour and future captain for many years to come but very little has gone to plan for Jack Wilshere thus far.
