The game against Chelsea is one of the most vital for Arsenal over the course of a season, and three points would mark a huge coup for the club and Wenger, who is once again under pressure from the media and fans, despite signing a new deal in the summer.

"Obviously for a striker it's always important to score, the statistics are very important, and I keep it in a part of my mind", he said.

"But after a big reflection with everybody around me like my family and my close friends in a supportive way, I wanted to stay at the Arsenal and I thought the story was not over, finished at Arsenal". Then, they won 13 consecutive games and eventually won the Premier League. "There are some clubs paying £100m and £200m on players but I do not think that's the philosophy".

It could be useful as a platform on which to develop young talents and give much-needed match practice to others, but results should not be paramount. Each club have its own resources and its way of working.

However, Bellerin believes that the record arrival of Lacazette and the continued presence of Sanchez are good statements of the Gunners' intent.

"It is a good opportunity to show we can cope", Wenger said.

Arsenal find themselves in an unfamiliar position come Thursday as they get set to play in the Europa League group stage for the very first time.

Mesut Ozil tops a star-studded list of Arsenal players who have been rested ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash against FC Koln.

"Our focus is on the Thursday's game. But when they start playing, they really should get behind the team".

"[The] Europa League is a very important competition for us".

Arsenal will be hoping to make a swift return to the Champions League and have two avenues to do so. "But we have to win at home and you know how it is when you don't win at home". One could even go further and give all regular first-teamers the night off.
