Arsenal vs Standard Liege: What has been said?

Standard Liege head coach Michel Preud’homme: “Every player has their own qualities.

“But when you look at players that can replace the big names everyone knows, it is the same thing in terms of quality – they are a little younger but they will be tomorrow’s stars for Arsenal.

“There are young players who played in Frankfurt and against Nottingham Forest in the League Cup, there is no difference between them and the more recognised players.

“Of course Arsenal are the big favourites in this game. If we manage to get a result it would be a surprise.”
