Mikel Arteta’s side have made so much progress over the last few seasons and a place back at Europe’s top table after so long is another major landmark.
After another big summer spend, the Gunners are back in the big time and must balance their European campaign with trying to keep pace with Manchester City in the Premier League.
That invites its own pressure and problems but that will matter little to supporters who have been dreaming of these nights coming back to the Emirates Stadium.
