Arsenal will be looking for a good result when they face Slavia Prague in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie, after a disappointing weekend of Premier League football.
The Gunners lost 3-0 to Liverpool on Saturday, in what was Mikel Arteta’s 50th Premier League game in charge.
The Spaniard will hope the return of Europa League fixtures offers a reprieve from Arsenal’s inconsistent form over recent months.
However, the Londoners have reason to be positive ahead of the game, having remained unbeaten in eight previous matches against Czech sides, with seven wins from those encounters.
The Gunners previously hosted Slavia Prague at the Emirates in 2007, when they won with the remarkable score of 7-0, with Cesc Fàbregas, Theo Walcott, Alexander Hleb and Nicklas Bendtner among the goals.

Arsenal v Slavia Prague team news
Arsenal: Kieran Tierney was withdrawn with a knee problem against Liverpool at the weekend, while David Luiz could miss the remainder of the season due to injury.
Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe are doubts, but Granit Xhaka is expected to have recovered from an illness in time for the clash.
Slavia Prague: Goalkeeper Ondřej Kolář was injured badly, fracturing his skull, when the Czechs eliminated Rangers in the last round, and will therefore be unavailable.
Ondřej Kúdela and Simon Deli also look set to miss out, meaning Slavia could be short of options in the centre-back area.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Slavia Prague
Thursday’s visitors to the Emirates have proved they are no pushovers, having eliminated Leicester and Rangers en route to the quarter-finals. However, anything other than an Arsenal win seems unlikely.
The quality and experience in the Gunners’ ranks should see them over the line, especially given Arsenal have won four of their five home games in Europe this term.
But with four sendings off in their last three games, there could be plenty of cards distributed in this first-leg meeting.
