Arsenal fans react to Europa League group stage draw

Arsenal have made hard work of settling into life under Unai Emery, losing their two opening matches against Manchester City and Chelsea.

Progress was made at the Emirates Stadium last weekend following victory over West Ham but the Gunners still looked shaky at the back and things are about to become a lot more difficult in the months ahead.

September sees the return of European football for the Gunners and Arsenal learnt their fate in Friday’s Europa League group stage draw, which sees Emery’s side face a different sort of challenge in their travels across the continent.

Semi-finalists last term, Arsenal have to deal with the weight of expectation they will not get in the Premier League this season and anything short of success will be seen as a major disappointment – so the long road to Baku begins.

Arsenal fans have had their say on the draw and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
