Arsenal vs PSV LIVE: Europa League team news and line-ups as Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka kick off

“Resilience, fight, character, guts” – Arteta hails Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Leeds

Arsenal’s Europa League campaign faces its biggest test tonight when the Gunners take on PSV Eindhoven in a rearranged clash after the first game was postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Three points tonight bring the London side a big step closer to a place in the knockout rounds.

Since losing to Manchester United in early September, the Gunners have recorded seven victories in victories against Tottenham (3-1) and Liverpool (3-2) during that period, as well as back-to-back Europa League victories against Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt. Last time out, Bukayo Saka scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Leeds, leaving Arsenal four points clear at the top of the Premier League while Mikel Arteta’s side are one of the hottest sides in Europe.

Arteta’s men sit at the top of Group A with a perfect record of three wins from three, but they are yet to meet the Dutch side, two points adrift in second place. Victory at the Emirates tonight will put Arsenal in firm control of the group and they need just a point to secure first place and a place in the last 16.

Follow all the action as Arsenal hosts PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League:

Martin Odegaard names key to Arsenal’s superb start to the season

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard has praised the club’s “winning mentality” after they continued their good start to the season with a narrow Europa League win at Bodo/Glimt.

Bukayo Saka’s chance goal in the first half was enough to seal a 1-0 win at the Arctic Circle as the Gunners recorded 11 wins from 12 games.

Odegaard started in his native Norway as boss Mikel Arteta shuffled his pack with one eye on Sunday’s tricky trip to Leeds.

With the World Cup cutting the club calendar, Arsenal have managed their squad well so far, with only a 3-1 defeat at Manchester United erasing their copy book.

Odegaard believes the mindset within the squad is behind the recent run and although he sits pretty much at the top of the Premier League, he insists nobody takes anything for granted.


Van Nistelrooy on Arsenal

Ruud van Nistelrooy says Arsenal have had a fantastic start to the season and sees today’s game as an opportunity for his side to take on the Premier League leaders.

“They’ve had a great start. Ten games into the season with nine wins, that’s a fantastic start from them, the way they’re playing.” said the PSV boss,

“[Mikel] Arteta develops his team with his style of play and he’s done well with a young side – it’s a very promising team to watch.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to come here and test ourselves.”


Can Arsenal win four in a row?

Arsenal have won each of their first three group games in all five Europa League appearances. However, they only won four in a row in 2020/21, but all six back then.

Mikel Arteta tells Arsenal to complete Europa League progress to ‘skip two games’

Mikel Arteta has urged his Arsenal players to make short work of their Europa League group and earn some time off as they prepare to host PSV Eindhoven on Thursday.

Arsenal have won their first three Group A games and a win over Ruud van Nistelrooy’s Eredivisie side will see them through to the knockout rounds and put them on the verge of winning the group.

Group victory will be rewarded with a bye to the round of 32, which could prove even more important in a season where a Winter World Cup shortens the calendar.

Arteta has rotated in the Europa League this year but not to the extent many expected. Players like Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and William Saliba all started with last week’s away win at Bodo/Glimt.


Arteta meets PSV

Mikel Arteta spoke about what he expects from Arsenal’s opponents when PSV Eindhoven arrive at the Emirates Stadium tonight.

“I think it’s a really good team.” he said: “I think what Ruud [van Nistelrooy] done with his team, how they play, you just see how many goals they score in their domestic league, how they do in the Europa League too, they’re a really dangerous side.”
