Wenger hails star's belief after Belgrade win

How to Watch Arsenal vs. Red Star Belgrade: Live Stream, Game Time, TV

Arsenal played a back line of Rob Holding, Mohamed Elneny, and Mathieu Debuchy (he's still on the team?) along with three youth team players Reiss Nelson, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, and Joseph Willock.

Arsenal improved in the second half which wasn't hard given how poor they were in the first.

Theo Walcott was the biggest culprit of the night, along with Giroud, as both forwards failed to finish off moves instigated by the brilliant Jack Wilshere.

- Olivier Giroud has been directly involved in eight goals in his last eight starts in Europe for Arsenal (seven goals, one assist). They were risky on set pieces, but thanks to some good saves from Petr Cech and some desperate defending Arsenal survived without conceding.

Red Star was extremely organized in defense all game, but they also began threatening Arsenal's backline in the second half getting most of the chances.

Wilshere found space outside the box before feeding Walcott. That's Olivier Giroud! He keeps belief when it is tough.




With Arsene Wenger already having to cope with a defensive injury crisis that has left him without Koscielny, Chambers and Mustafi, the decision to leave the Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker and our Spanish global Nacho Monreal back in London while Arsenal take on Red Star Belgrade away shows clearly that the boss is making the Premier League game at Everton on Sunday a big priority over this eveningĀ“s Europa League tie.

"That's why he scores at moments you do not expect him to score".

"Overall, the spirit we showed was remarkable, fighting together in a game that was very physical".

In a ferocious atmosphere at the Stadion Rajko Mitic, in front of 50,000 fans, Arsenal made it three wins out of three in Europa League Group H.

A win in their next Europa league match would secure a place in the knockout rounds for Arsenal, while a win and a BATE draw or loss would clinch the top spot in the group.

After Saturday's somewhat embarrassing defeat to Watford, tonight could be a great opportunity to bounce back before our next league game against Everton.
