The Europa League final will be in Lyon, France on Wednesday, 16 May, with the victor guaranteed a place in next season's Champions League.

The Frenchman also admitted that Spanish side, Atletico Madrid are the team to avoid in the Europa League semi-finals. "You can't say they are mentally weak, they might be physically not as big as a lot of teams but they turned it round to 2-2, so that's a big plus for them as well". He surprises some people but he has power, he has pace, he is finishing well now and I believe he is a team player as well.

But this didn't stop former Arsenal legend and Premier League victor Martin Keown criticizing the club for their "lack of goal and cohesiveness".

The Gunners progressed to the last four after defeating CSKA Moscow 6-3 over two legs of the quarter-finals.

You start to look, can Arsenal win the competition, on this performance no.

"It could be argued that Arsenal need this more than Atletico as a route into the Champions League next season", said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Speaking on The Debate, Wise said:"If they [Arsenal] get past Atletico I think they have a really good chance of winning this".

The first legs will take place on April 24-25 and the second will be on May 1-2. "I rotate as much as I can, unfortunately some players have to play all the games".

Arsenal were handed a mouth-watering clash against tournament favourites Atletico Madrid in Friday's (April 13) draw for the semi-finals of the Europa League, meaning the clubs will meet for the first time.

"As well, Jack is a player who makes a difference individually and I believe these kinds of players when they are exhausted they are more in trouble than the players who run less with the ball".

"Honestly, it is very hard", he said.
