Arsenal will face off against Sporting Lisbon at the Emirates Stadium in the Europa League this evening.

Arsenal could qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League – and as group winners – with a victory against Sporting tonight.

Arsenal are currently top of Group E three points ahead of second placed Sporting Lisbon.

Speaking in the run-up to tonight’s game, Arsenal boss Unai Emery challenged his players to qualify with two games to spare.

He said: “It’s a very important match because if we win we’re first in the group – that’s our clear target.

“This competition is very important for us. It’s one way to win a title and get into the Champions League next year.

“We want to continue to improve and to continue with the players taking responsibility and confidence.

“I want to continue at the Emirates with our supporters with the same spirit as in the matches against Blackpool, Leicester and Liverpool.”

While Emery also revealed that Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is back in training but won’t play a part in tonight’s game.

He said: “He’s nearer, closer to being with us in the competitive games. He is feeling well and getting better every day.

“We’re going to think after the international break how we can continue working and how he can start playing games.”
