Wenger said: "There was always a huge pressure on him to come back as quickly as possible and to expect a lot".

"On the injury front we have no big problems, a few players have some response to the fact they played two global games like Ozil and Ramsey, who are rested completely".

"Wednesday or Thursday night is no problem. In three days you can recover".

He said; "It was a good start, a ideal start for us".

Hopefully for Arsenal fans, the final few chapters are just a little bit more gripping. "When you play Wednesday-Saturday it's similar to Thursday-Sunday".

And ahead of the visit of Cologne, Iwobi stated that he is set to return to action for the Gunners.

The German goalkeeper, who is admittedly an Arsenal fan, has already amassed over 150 appearances for his boyhood club, and is rated as one of the most promising young goalkeepers in Germany.

Despite injuries, form and competition for places all playing a role in denting that 2012 vision of the future, it wasn't until this summer when that group was finally broken up for good. Up front, Yuya Osako will be the key player for Stoger to test the Arsenal defence, alongside strike partner Jhon Cordoba.

Meanwhile, last season's turkey shoot affair against Bayern (Arsenal lost 10-2 on aggregate) and the chastening 5-1 aggregate clobbering by Barcelona in 2016 merely destabilised the squad and made the natives more restless.

Despite the Fairs Cup defeat by Cologne Arsenal showed character to win the double in 1970-71.

It is the first time in 21 years that Arsenal have not been involved in the Champions League after they finished fifth in the Premier League last season. Sometimes it takes time while other clubs use money.

"It is not the best chance but one of the opportunities", he told reporters today. Jose Mourinho took a risk in placing all his eggs in the Europa League basket previous year and was ultimately rewarded as his Manchester United team beat Ajax in the final, booked a spot in the Champions League group stage and added another item to the club's trophy cabinet.

In the attacking third, the likes of Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez will probably get the nod to start behind Olivier Giroud.

"We have done that for 20 years and 20 years by doing it in the Premier League".
