Arsenal are making their debut in the UEFA Europa League group stage, having missed out on Champions League qualification for the first time under Arsene Wenger.

They still have some able players to call upon though.

The Gunners get their European campaign up and running at the Emirates Stadium but will have a notable number of absentees, with a trip to Chelsea in the Premier League just around the corner on Sunday.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has admitted that he genuinely came close to leaving the club during the summer in the pursuit of more regular football, before ultimately deciding to stay with the Gunners because he felt the "story was not finished".

After missing out on reaching Europe's elite club competition last season after 19 straight qualifications, Wenger's side begin life in the Europa League by facing German side Cologne on Thursday.

"Obviously if we play well and we play our game and we are very focused on this Europa League, we want to go and win it, we are very ambitious and I am looking forward to the game tomorrow".

The Arsenal boss has thrown injury-prone midfielder Wilshere a lifeline by including him in the squad for tonight's Europa League clash with Cologne. Coquelin is out for three weeks. "In three days you can recover".

That could open the door for Jack Wilshere to make his first start for Arsenal in over 13 months as he looks to rebuild his career following another fractured leg. He has been injured at the start of the season so he was a bit behind the others.

"Teams like Leicester and Chelsea, they didn't have any midweek games [when they won the Premier League] so obviously players will get more rest and just play at the weekend".

"His game, you have certainly seen the video of him when we played against Barcelona, his game is about that", Wenger said, highlighting a particularly impressive display against the Catalan giants in 2011.
