Mesut Ozil returned to the Arsenal starting line-up for their Premier League game at Cardiff on Sunday after reports he had fallen out with boss Unai Emery.

This will be a big game for Aaron Ramsey, who returns to the ground where it all began for him.

As for Chelsea, in their first foray into the second-tier competition since winning it in 2013, they face PAOK, BATE Borisov, and MOL Vidi. The most important thing is for the player to have the mentality to help the team with his quality and his performance.

Two clean sheets will their boost morale, but Warnock says it's important for the team to put away the chances that come their way this term.

"Now it's not to think about the past, I prefer to think and my concentration with the players also is the next match - focus only to work, to work, to work for the next match and how we can win".

For half an hour against West Ham, the Gunners looked in danger of slipping to a third successive defeat following losses to Manchester City and Chelsea. On a much brighter note, we haven't lost to Cardiff in a competitive match for over 50 Years and they haven't scored in the last four. "Then after this game I analysed it with the players", the Spaniard was quoted as saying on the club's official website. "It's a great opportunity to go into the global break with another win under our belts and hopefully then we can build when we come back and really kick on". People have this assumption of us because of our approach a year ago.

"When he was playing for Real Madrid, I remember a lot of matches when he was on the right".

Celtic's Europa League group stage campaign will begin with a quickfire rematch against fellow Champions League dropouts Rosenborg.

Cardiff are without Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Aron Gunnarsson as they seek to open their Premier League goals account, while Junior Hoilett is also a major doubt.

Emery appears to have taken a different stance and has already been forced to deny any rift with Ozil after the German missed the home victory over West Ham because of an illness.
