Arsenal have a chance to be in touching distance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Europa League as they travel to take on second-place Red Star Belgrade.
The competition has felt like a blessing in disguise up until now with Arsene Wenger able to heavily rotate in between league and cup matches throughout the season.
However, the players that are thrown into the starting XI in Serbia this Thursday will know they’ve got a real chance of breaking into the first-team given recent results.
The Gunners’ 2-1 defeat to Watford last weekend showed plenty of cracks in Wenger’s decision making process, with Jack Wilshere unable to get on to make a difference.
I’ve got no doubt that the Englishman will prove he’s got what it takes to challenge Granit Xhaka for a spot in midfield, but he must first do it for 90 minutes tomorrow night!
Here’s some of the best pictures from Arsenal’s final training session:
