Arsenal's first team stars were put through their paces in training by Unai Emery ahead of their Europa League second round first-leg tie against BATE Borisov in Belarus.

Out-of-favour playmaker Mesut Ozil was among the players taking part in the session at London Colney.



The return leg of their European knockout tie will be at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday February 21, with Europa League success now appearing to be the Gunners most likely route into the Champions League.



In the wake of the club's 2-1 Premier League win over Huddersfield on Saturday, Emery admitted it would be 'difficult' to finish in the top four, but insisted his team would not give up the fight.

Emery is a noted Europa League specialist, having led Sevilla to the title in 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16.

The Spaniard also guided Arsenal to an unbeaten group stage campaign, with wins home and away over FK Qarabag and Vorksla Poltava.

Danny Welbeck grabbed the winner in a crucial away win over Sporting Lisbon, only to suffer a serious ankle injury in the goalless return leg at the Emirates.
