Arsenal vs. Vorskla Poltava to go ahead

There had been some speculation over whether the match would take place at all after it had been moved at the last minute from Poltava to Kiev, but Arsenal were unfazed by the late change to the schedule and got off to a bright start. "For us, it's not different because they are working with us every day". "It's not an easy decision for UEFA to make either", he told a news conference on Wednesday. "For us, yesterday we were preparing for our trip to Poltava and then awaiting the final decision in the evening", Emery said.

"We only want to play the match, to win and to show every supporter that we can do well".

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has opted to leave several first team players at home and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil and Lucas Torreira have not travelled. They are coming with us because we can give them chances tomorrow and also because we would prefer for some players to not do this long travelling.

"We were ready to play in Poltava; we are ready to play in Kiev".
