Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to show their excitement at their Europa League draw against Belarusian outfit FC BATE Borisov.
There were some tough teams left in the draw, and Arsenal are lucky to be against a team that they managed to beat 4-2 and 6-0 in the same competition last year. The Gunners also look much stronger than they did this time last year, which means that a win is a necessity for the fans and anything less will be a major disappointment.
The vast majority of fans are simply planning for the next round of fixtures, sweeping the Belarusian side completely. All they will hope is that their players do not have this same level of complacency, or that could end in disaster.
Manager Unai Emery has won this competition three times, so the fans will feel very confident with him at the helm.
This is what the fans had to say:
That's a walkover for Gunners.
