Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette out for up to six weeks after knee operation

Alexandre Lacazette

While speaking to the press ahead of their trip to Sweden, where they will face the Swedish giants Ostersunds in the Europa League round 32, Wenger argued that it is quite unfair for the clubs to spend heavily on the winter windo3w and fail to get their services.

Batshuayi, who has been in sparkling form since joining from Chelsea on loan in the mid-season transfer window, helped host Dortmund record its first victory in European competition this season.

The sides joining the Europa League after finishing third in their Champions League groups traditionally tend to struggle to adapt.

Asked about playing the former Manchester United man in a central role, he said: "It's where I prefer him".

"We have to perform better in every single game and show until the end of the season a complete hunger to win every single game".

"Maybe we didn't push enough in the second half but overall it was job done in a serous game".

And Arsenal were off an running after just 16 minutes, but it was through defender Monreal, who pounced on a spilled save attempt by Ostersunds goalkeeper Aly Keita and slotted into the gaping net from close range.

Arsenal: David Ospina 7/10, Hector Bellerin 7, Calum Chambers 6, Shkodran Mustafi 6, Nacho Monreal 7, Alex Iwobi 7, Mohamed Elneny 6, Ainsley Maitland-Niles 6, Henrikh Mkhitaryan 7, Mesut Ozil 6, Danny Welbeck 5. They still had World Cup winners on the pitch, talent all over and technically good level.

Allen Kenitzer, of the Federal Aviation Authority's Office of Communications, said the aircraft sustained "substantial damage". An NTSB report issued in 2004 blamed the pilot's decision to descend too fast and too close to the scenic Grand Wash Cliffs.

On Tuesday Arsenal confirmed that Alexandre Lacazette is out for up to six weeks, as the French striker had to have an operation on his knee.

The Armenian attacker is targetting back-to-back Europa League title wins, and he is tipping Arsenal to do it this season. Welbeck is at a crucial point in his Arsenal career: with less than 18 months remaining on his current deal, he needs to prove he's worthy of a new contract.

After Viktor Fischer's opener, Atletico responded with goals by Saul Niguez, Kevin Gameiro, Antoine Griezmann and substitute Vitolo.

"Arsenal were the better team and deserved to win", he said.

The coach should probably move on regardless of how Arsenal's season finishes, but it's unlikely he'll do so if he does manage to deliver Champions League football.
