Arsenal provide brief team news update ahead of Vitoria SC clash

Arsenal vs Vitoria SC

Arsenal are set to play host to Vitoria SC on Thursday evening.

Unai Emery’s side put on a rather underwhelming display earlier this week, when they were handed a 1-0 defeat at the hands of newly-promoted Sheffield United.

So, they should be keen to get back to winning ways vs Vitoria.

The Gunners will also have a great opportunity to put themselves in a commanding spot atop of Group F.

The north London outfit are already top of the group, three points above 2nd and 3rd placed Standard Liege and Eintracht Frankfurt.

But with those two sides facing off on Thursday, Arsenal could emerge from their next Europa League game with a five-point lead in Group F.

As for Vitoria SC, they are currently sat dead bottom of Arsenal’s group, and are yet to pick up a single point.
