Passionate Bellerin insists Arsenal focused on Cologne and Europa League, not Chelsea

Passionate Bellerin insists Arsenal focused on Cologne and Europa League, not Chelsea”

Hector Bellerin insists Arsenal should not be ruled out of winning the Premier League despite enduring a hard start to the season.

Sanchez could make his first appearance of the season for the Gunners in the Europa League when they host Cologne at The Emirates on Thursday night.

"We will take it seriously but the priority is to focus on the Premier League and combining the two", said Wenger.

'It's worth winning. Look at last season, there's the top four and then Man United got into (the Champions League) by winning the Europa League, so it will be interesting to see what Arsene Wenger does. Thursday to Sunday morning is short so I have to think about that.

"It's a competition that we know we can win and we're going to fight as much as in the other competitions to do it".

However, the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Hector Bellerin were all involved in the first team training session at London Colney, suggesting that they are likely to be involved in some capacity.

Chelsea endured a spluttering start to the last campaign before a run of 13 successive wins propelled them to the top of England's top tier - a position they didn't relinquish as they secured a second league trophy in three seasons.

Francis Coquelin misses out with a hamstring injury sustained during Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth while Santi Cazorla remains a long-term absentee.

Seven-time European champions AC Milan have an easier task, with ties against Austria Vienna, AEK Athens and Rijeka of Croatia in Group D as they continue their return to European competition for the first time since 2013-14. That was disappointing as that would have been another good trophy to win.

"We are a new squad".

He said: "The season before was not a good one for them [Chelsea]".

"We must stick together also when playing in Europa League", he told Milan TV. There are so many games to play.
