Arsenal boss Wenger: I don't want Wilshere to change his spirit

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has told Jack Wilshere what he can do to win his place in the Gunners' first-team back after returning to the club from loan this season.

The Gunners haven't actually won a European title since 1994, when they were victorious in the European Cup Winners' Cup, so there is every chance that the Gunners will take this competition very seriously.

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.

Arsenal will compete in the Europa League where they are in Group H with FC Cologne, Bate Borisov and Red Star Belgrade.

Petr Cech, Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette all sat out the open training session on Wednesday.

Wilshere is expected to start against Koln with up to seven first-team players rested.

Wenger refused to say whether Wilshere will start, but said the midfielder is getting "stronger and stronger every day" after recovering from an ankle fracture suffered towards the end of last season while on loan at Bournemouth.

Asked if he can get back to his best, Wenger replied: "Yes, if he is injury-free he will come back".

Kremlin brands Saakashvili's 'illegal border crossing' as political circus
Kiev is "panicking", Saakashvili said, adding that he did "not want to overthrow President Poroshenko" but just defend his rights. Now, Saakashvili wants to return to challenge that decision in court and get back into politics.

Time to put the frustrations to bed.

"He was injured at the start of the season from last season, so he was a bit behind the other players but he's getting better and better".

Arsenal finished outside the top four last season for the first time in two decades and will be playing in the Europa League for the first time on Thursday after years of regular Champions League football. With the competition, a fresh set of challenge is set to be faced by Arsene Wenger, who will have to manage the fixture crunch carefully as the season progresses. Nevertheless, in Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud, the Arsenal boss has enough firepower to topple the struggling Germans.

Tottenham lineup predictor: Dortmund at Wembley
Spurs are playing all their home games at Wembley this season, as they prepare to move into a new ground next year. It would be good if we could score there and, in an ideal-case scenario, get some points on the board.
