Arsenal boosted by Man United’s Europa League draw

All that is left for Arsenal if we are to salvage any sort of happiness, dignity or some measure of success after the disappointing results in the Premier League and Champions League campaigns, is to win the FA cup trophy at Wembley in May.

It is also pretty important to maintain the club’s remarkable record of qualifying for the elite European club competition in all the years that Arsene Wenger has been in charge and in that respect I think everyone connected with Arsenal should be very pleased with how the Europa League draw went today, specifically with the fact that Manchester United were picked to play the Russian side Rostov.

The longer that Jose Mourinho and his players stay in the competition, the better for us. That is because they have one hell of a fixture schedule building up and we know how this can take it’s toll on a team. It is not just the increased chances of United dropping Premier League points over the next few weeks though, because they are coming to the Emirates at the beginning of May and that could be a crucial game.

If United are still in the Europa League at that time they will play their semi-final ties on the Thursday before and after facing us and that would surely give the Gunners an advantage. We might not want them to win the thing but United staying in for a while should be good for Arsenal and getting Rostov in the next round increases the likelihood of that.

      LOL…@hecmanx
      I totally agree with you. Absolutely rubbish.

      Look at this statement:
      ‘The longer that Jose Mourinho and his players stay in the competition, the better for us. That is because they have one hell of a fixture schedule building up and we know how this can take it’s toll on a team’.

      Absolutely rubbish.

    They could play 4 matches in 1 week and the match against being the 4th and still we’ll manage to lose, it’s Maurinho’s Man U remember

    Some Arsenal fans like Bob can’t just accept that from 2nd to 4th place doesn’t help the fans because the club would still be knocked out in the round 16 of UCL,am sure every other team in Europe would be wishing to have Arsenal as their opponent in the round 16. Only the board would rejoice that we are in the Top four,because more money comes to their pockets and probably some deluded fans would say “yea we finished above spurs”

    You do know if Utd finish outside of the top four and end up winning the Europa league, they will enter the champions, replacing the team that finishes 4th,right?
    The sooner Utd get knocked out the better πŸ˜‰, that will be one less trap door to worry about regarding our precious Wenger trophy πŸ†πŸ˜‚

    Who cares? How about we pay more attention to our club, and less to our rivals?
