There are insinuations that Arsenal Coach, Arsene Wenger will not be going all out to stage a formidable challenge in the Europa League next season to dethrone Manchester United.

A report in the Daily Mail suggests that the French gaffer is ready to disregard the Europa League next season to ensure Arsenal sustain a title challenge.

The Gunners will play in European football’s lesser competition for the first time since 1999/00 after failing to qualify for the Champions League last season.

And Sportsmail understands the Gunners boss does not view the Europa League as a priority and is planning to use the competition to give his fringe players and youngsters more game time.

Wenger knows he is under pressure in which delivering the Premier League title will help a great deal to calm frail nerves

Wenger’s stance could change if they reach the latter stages of the competition
