Arsenal Cologne: Gunners favourites for Europa League clash, says captain Matthias Lehmann

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has stated that he wants to win the Europa League more than any other player, according the Daily Star.

Well, Arsenal fans you've dreaded this day coming in which you play in the Europa League, and now your agony has been delayed for one hour, as the kick-off has put been back, due to crowd safety.

The France global made it to the semi-final stage with Lyon last season, before eventually coming up short against Ajax.

Arsenal fans may not be relishing Europa League competition, but Cologne's supporters are certainly enjoying their return to continental football after a 25-year absence as they turned out in force in the English capital.

The German side are now bottom of the Bundesliga without a win in the current campaign but remain in the Europa League. "I still want to improve again and again and win some more trophies for the club, so as I said to the boss our story is not finished, so everybody was pleased with that".

Cologne now sit bottom of the Bundesliga having lost all three of their league games so far - but they reached the Europa League having finished fifth last season.

It may be that he is forced to wait for an opportunity to aid Arsenal's quest, with Arsene Wenger set to rotate his squad against Koln on Thursday, but Lacazette will be raring to go whenever he is called upon. We should think about our match this week and take it game by game.

"I hope we can lift the trophy this season".
