Arsenal boss Wenger: No excuses for Chelsea after Thursday Euro tie

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists there'll be no excuses going to Chelsea on Sunday.

Chelsea will have two extra days to prepare for the game with Arsenal to face Cologne in the Europa League tomorrow night.

But Wenger says: "It is a good opportunity to show we can cope.

"We played on Wednesday night in Barcelona and against Everton on Saturday morning.

"It is a preconceived idea, football is down to how you perform on the day.

"Three days is plenty of time to recover."
