ARSENAL return to European football this Thursday with a tough opening group game against Swiss champions FC Zürich.
The Gunners will be determined to put the disappointing 3-1 defeat by Manchester United behind them.
Where Antony’s first goal followed by Marcus Rashford’s double blew up north London’s 100% record last weekend.
However, the Zurich side have their own problems as they are still waiting for their first league win of the season.
Also, Mikel Arteta’s side have a phenomenal record in the Europa League group stage.

- FC Zurich rolls out the red carpet for Arsenal FC Thursday, September 8th
- The aim is probably to 5:45 p.m. UK time – 18:45 local time.
- Stadion Letzigrund in Zurich, Switzerland is the assigned arena for this game and can seat around 30,930 fans.
- Arsenal and Zurich face each other for the first time in history.
What TV channel is Zurich vs Arsenal on and can I stream it live?

Zurich head coach Franco Foda should have a well-manned team for the big duel against Arsenal.
However, Foda will have to continue without centre-back Ilan Sauter and Shaktar Donetsk loanee Bogdan Viunnyk, both of whom are injured.
Elsewhere, Arsenal remain light in midfield with Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny still in the treatment room while Reiss Nelson goes through his recovery process.
But Mikel Arteta was dealt a fresh blow ahead of the Gunners’ Europa League return when Emile Smith Rowe picked up an injury during the warm-up against Manchester United.
