Aaron Ramsey has admitted the Europa League is now Arsenal's best chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League, putting added emphasis on Thursday's round-of-16 second leg against AC Milan.
"We can't take our foot on the gas we are going to treat it like a 0-0".
The 29-year-old found himself frozen out by United manager Jose Mourinho, but Wenger is more appreciative of his qualities and has installed him on the right of his three-man attacking midfield. We've seen in the first game how good they are.
And with Gunners' chief executive Ivan Gazidis promising a "catalyst of change", Allegri heads the list of possible successors to Wenger.
And it is that willingness to face potentially damaging situations that prompted him to issue a defiant challenge to Arsenal's furious fans this week.
I think he'll return after the global break, he's on the right track.
"We're always playing for the fans, it doesn't matter if they could have come today or not", Mkhitaryan told beIN Sports.
Viera is now the head coach of Major League Soccer club New York City FC since 2016 and has been linked with replacing Arsene Wenger at Arsenal at the end of the season.
"It is a massive opportunity for us so it's something we've got to be prepared to give everything for to try to achieve this", Ramsey said in Wednesday's press conference.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked sharp on the pitch, though he is ineligible for Arsenal's European campaign this season after his move from Dortmund.
"However, I also have a feeling that there might be an announcement by the manager either on Friday or over the weekend to confirm that he is going to step down in the summer, perhaps going upstairs, easing the tension and allowing the team to have a go for the Europa League without the same strain".
