ARSENAL NEWS

Arsenal recorded a draw in the match against Liverpool last weekend and showed the world they will fight for the place in the top four this season. Unai Emery just took over the club from Arsene Wenger and nobody expected that Arsenal, without major changes, can play a significant role in Premier League this season. Emery proved them all wrong, but he has an international trophy in sight as well. If Arsenal win the match against Sporting, they will secure the first place in the group two rounds before the end of the group phase.
