Arsenal line up Patrick Vieira to replace Arsene Wenger

The Gunners may have had a disappointing campaign this term in the Premier League but they still look to end the season on a high with five games to go.

Wenger conceded that Arsenal's season is now resting on winning the Europa League and he did acknowledge the difficulty of facing a team of Atletico Madrid's quality in the semi-final.

Arsene Wenger has acknowledged the importance of Arsenal's upcoming Europa League semi-final showdown with Atletico Madrid, admitting that it is "absolutely vital" his side win the competition.

Arsenal players were given some money to enjoy a flutter, with food and drinks laid on.

The Gunners are sixth in the English Premier League table, 14 points out of the top four and two above Burnley who are seventh.

Which club are favourites to win the 2017/18 Europa League?

"Its a big opponent to beat them".

Wenger, meanwhile, hopes to have Jack Wilshere's future sorted before the World Cup. I never spoke about it in the press conferences, or not many times, as he was not the subject of the debate, but we have missed him a lot in our game.

"Yes, of course. We miss him a lot". I don't know. I have to see how he responds to his injury.

LONDON, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 04: Diego Costa of Chelsea shoots at goal during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on February 4, 2017 in London, England. "He has an offer that is on a long-term contract basically, and I hope that at some stage he will sign it". "It's very hard to explain why because until last season, we were one of the best teams in terms of the away record", he said. I am always confident.
