We have the unfavourable timing of Thursday night's Europa League group stage tie coming up this week, only three days before our trip to Stamford Bridge, and we can not afford to get distracted from that. There may be an important lesson there for the manager and Arsenal 20 years on. Arsene Wenger's men come into this match on the back of a 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday. So far this season, even with the absence of the brilliant Santi Cazorla and the struggles of other central midfielders in the squad, Wilshere has still been unable to get a look in a game since the pre-season ended.
If Arsenal fail to perform, Wenger will not be blaming the Cologne game - for which Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey will be rested - as he feels there is enough time to recover.
"Obviously if we play well and we play our game and we are very focused on this Europa League, we want to go and win it, we are very ambitious and I am looking forward to the game tomorrow".
Sunday's Premier League trip to Stamford Bridge could determine whether Bellerin is right to say that Arsenal can win the Premier League title.
'This is a challenge but in the Bundesliga we have played against teams with similar qualities as Arsenal'.

Arsenal will be hoping to make a swift return to the Champions League and have two avenues to do so.
After Matchday 1 of the UEFA Champions League in the two previous days, Europa League commences with its group stage on Thursday.
The competition could, possibly, also provide the Gunners with an alternative route into next season's Champions League, an opportunity that Manchester United took up with aplomb last term. It is the first time that Arsenal will play in the competition since Arsene Wenger's hiring in 1996. Nelson could be a young face on display while fringe players such as Olivier Giroud and Jack Wilshere could have a chance to sharpen up. The club has given me a lot, I want to win some more trophies.
