Arsenal news and transfers live: Double deal completed, north London derby surprise selection
Arsenal have found out their Europa League group, being drawn against Eintracht Frankfurt, Vitoria and Standard Liege on Friday.
After the disappointment of Baku last season, Unai Emery and his side will be hoping to go one better this season and lift the trophy.
On the pitch, the Gunners’ hundred percent start to the Premier League season is over after a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.
Emery dropped Alexandre Lacazette to the bench and handed a first start to Nicolas Pepe as the Gunners looked to solidify in midfield.
Arsenal were solid in the opening stages, but a headed goal from Joel Matip opened the floodgates and Mohamed Salah scored a brace to seal the points before Lucas Torreira’s consolation goal.
Emery will be disappointed by the result, but heartened by his side’s improved showing at Anfield compared to recent seasons.
All eyes are now on the north London derby today, and we’ll have all the build-up.
