Arsenal are in Zurich this evening as they begin their latest quest for Europa League success.

Clearly, the focus this season will be on domestic form after such a strong start to the campaign, though European football offers another avenue for potential glory and silverware.

Should Mikel Arteta lead the club to only their third continental crown as well as push the Premier League’s leading teams all the way, major progress will have been made. First up is a trip to Switzerland this evening.
