The Gunners suffered a disappointing loss on penalties to Sporting CP in the Europa League on Thursday, but they hope to return to their winning ways in the Premier League and continue their campaign to lift the league title for the first time in nearly twenty years. In their last five games, Arsenal won all of them, scoring 15 goals and conceding only four.
