"Everybody speaks about Atletico Madrid that they look the strongest team on paper", he said, but he also described Marseille as a hard place to go.

Wenger signed a fresh two-year contract at the end of last season after leading the club to FA Cup glory and Lacazette reckons a successful finish to their Europa League campaign will be enough to keep the embattled Frenchman another season.

Speaking after Friday's draw paired Atletico with Arsenal for the clubs' first meeting in a competitive fixture, the former Atletico player told BeIN Sports that he was expecting a hard tie.

"At this stage of the competition all games are hard, big rivals and if the draw wanted us against Arsenal, then we'll take that", Villaverde said. "It is a very open tie at 50/50 over two legs, which could be very different". "I really want to be in the final to play in front of my family and friends", the Arsenal striker said. "We have good medical staff and he's very serious in his rehab", Wenger said. "There is a big responsibility for everyone because we know with the position we are in the league, it is hard".
