Wenger reacts to empty seats ahead of CSKA clash

Arsenal have problems in attack with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ineligible, Danny Welbeck having picked up a back problem against Stoke City and Arsene Wenger unsure if Alexandre Lacazette is ready to start after a lengthy lay-off, per James Benge at the Evening Standard.

"Ideally, you want to combine both scoring goals and not conceding, but the situations are not always ideal".

With that in mind, the South American is likely to be deeply frustrated if Wenger opts for Cech. Viktor Goncharenko's side have won five of seven on their travels this season and six of their last nine Europa League away games, per Uefa.com.

And knowing his future could depend on it, Wenger is pondering a surprise goalkeeping change. I couldn't have imagined a better start [providing three assists in his home debut against Everton]. I don't know yet.

"I haven't got a problem saying they are the number one right now". I'd missed playing offensively.

At a press conference, the 29-year-old told reporters: "I can say it's a very good team".

Blue Moon To Light Up The Sky For Easter
However, NASA confirmed that since most months have 30 or 31 days it is possible to have two full moons appear in a single month. According to The Old Farmer's Almanac , the name is derived from the fact sap starts to flow from sugar maple trees at this time.

"There is some extra pressure to do extremely well in this competition, but that is part of being where we are". The tie comes against the backdrop of heightened diplomatic tensions between the British government and the Kremlin over the poisoning of Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter with a nerve agent in Salisbury last month. Wenger will want the Emirates Stadium to be packed on Thursday, especially as CSKA's travelling contingent can be expected to make plenty of noise.

They see Felix as a player to be developed by the club.

'Relations between England and Russian Federation at the moment are a bit complicated, I just hope it won't affect both ties, ' Wenger said.

However, Wenger believes that the fans always turn up for the big games and will be willing his team on to victory on Thursday.

There were in-excess of 10,000 empty seats at the weekend, underlining the growing apathy from fans towards the club at the moment.

"We are not going to think that we only have to give all our strength and power in Europa League games".
