Arsenal flew to Sweden on Wednesday for their Europa League clash with Osterunds, as they look to bounce back from the Premier League defeat to Tottenham over the weekend.

The Gunners were in highly spirits as they boarded the private plane to Sweden, knowing they may now need to win the Europa League to return to the Champions League after the weekend defeat to Spurs meant making the top four in the Premier League has become all the more difficult.

Among those on the plane was Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is in line for his European debut for Arsenal after moving from Manchester United in a swap deal with Alexis Sanchez in January, and so also was Danny Welbeck, but there were no signs of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gabonese striker is ineligible, despite not having played in the Europa League this season.
