Arsene Wenger has been troubled by the frequent sight of a half-full Emirates Stadium but is optimistic of strong backing from Arsenal fans in their Europa League clash with CSKA Moscow. Wenger will want the Emirates Stadium to be packed on Thursday, especially as CSKA's travelling contingent can be expected to make plenty of noise.

"The crowd, when something is at stake, is always there and always behind us".

"I don't think Arsenal has a problem with its support".

Arsenal face CSKA Moscow tomorrow in the quarter final of the Europe's second competition. "The target for us is to focus on our performance, win the game and accept the public judgment".

Southampton last won in the Premier League at West Bromwich on February 3 when Manuel Pellegrino was still in charge. "We don't have to think that there are no problems to solve in the Premier League and we don't need to play because were in sixth place".

The Europa League represents their only chance of silverware and their only realistic hope of securing UEFA Champions League football for next season.

The Express continues by saying that their "Spanish sources" believe that Real Madrid won't be bidding for the 25-year-old either. Salah paused before puffing out a breath and drilling it convincingly into the corner. "That was not too good".

So if we are to ever see the change in manager that a lot of us want, the board needs to realise that keeping Wenger is going to negatively affect the profits, which is why the recent spate of sparse attendances at home games may be doing the trick.

Having recorded four wins in a row in all competitions including an impressive 5-1 win over AC Milan in the last round, the Gunners are finally starting to hit some morale-boosting form after some deflating displays this season. "We are in the quarter-final and have to go step by step".

"I can say that they are a very good team". Everyone knows that the Berezutski brothers are more than 35-years-old, very experienced and can help them be compact in defence.

"You are a bit more in a situation where you have to defend well and attack well".

Wenger has repeatedly been the subject of calls for him to leave from the stands, but he is unconcerned by the prospect of the atmosphere affecting his team's performance in the first leg against CSKA before heading to Russian Federation. "For me this tie is 50/50".
