Europa League: Arsenal to face CSKA Moscow

Wenger understands Mertesacker’s wish to retire

Arsenal have reminded fans to keep the current political situation between the United Kingdom and Russian Federation in mind if they travel to next month's Europa League quarterfinal against CSKA Moscow.

"It's always hard to finish the job, especially when you have a good away result because you don't know a little bit (what's going to happen) in between", Wenger said. While that is an impressive streak of advancement out of group stage, the inability to move any further had become a sore spot for Arsene Wenger and the club.

And the success for Arsenal has been the result of a varied attack that has seen goals come from all over the field.

GOAL! Danny Welbeck celebrates scoring his second goal in the Europa League match between Arsenal and A.C. Milan at the Emirates Stadium, North London.

Welbeck scored the penalty to make it 1-1 on the night and 3-1 on aggregate.

Gattuso was magnanimous in his appraisal, despite being repeatedly pushed to criticse Welbeck, whose actions left AC Milan's players incensed.

'After that Danny took the penalty in a convincing way.

"Even myself, when I was a player, I would try and take advantage of some situations. I will give him my honest feeling as well".

We look at how the Europa League quarter-final draw will work and where to watch it. They got a good goal early on and made us work for it. But what I like has no influence.

Atletico Madrid, who won the Europa League in 2010 and 2012 and were losing Champions League finalists in two of the last four seasons, are the most imposing of the quarter-finalists. "We just have to wait for tomorrow", he said.
