Arsenal have won two and lost two of their first four Premier League games of the season, with their 4-0 defeat at Liverpool prior to the global break particularly alarming supporters that an injection of cash was needed. The important thing is to be consistent throughout the season.

Alexis Sanchez was close to joining Manchester City on deadline day with Arsenal's transfer window still ending with them making a profit - while the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea broke the bank to bolster their squads. Sometimes it takes time while other clubs use money.

"Lacazette has already proved that he can makes the difference. What matters is that on the pitch we give the maximum to prove that money is not everything".

Thoughts, Gooners? Has the spending gone too far or do we just need to accept it?

"He didn't start [against Bournemouth] after returning from global duty".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he does not view the Europa League as an avenue by which to qualify for the Champions League.

Wenger does not believe playing Thursday to Sunday this season will damage his side's Premier League campaign.

Arsenal will rest at least seven key first-team players as Arsene Wenger prepares to follow through on his promise that the Europa League would take a backseat.

Bellerin told the IBTimes: "Alexis is 100 per cent focused on Arsenal".

"[The] Europa League is a very important competition for us".

'Chelsea is a good opportunity to show we can do that, ' Wenger said of balancing demands.

FC Koln do not appear a huge threat on paper, but players can often be lifted by a big occasion and against a side who are expected to win, and we mustn't get complacent.
