English clubs made it three wins out of three games in the first round of matchdays in the Europa League and are looking towards continuing that run on Thursday.

For Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta, the Europa League offers some respite from a difficult start to their domestic league. Arsenal got three points in the Europa League after coming from behind in Vienna to beat Rapid Wien 2-1 in their opening Group B fixture last week.

On Thursday, Arsenal will face Dundalk, who are participating in the group stage of the competition for the second time in their history.

Another English club, Tottenham Hotspur, will be away against Belgian side, Antwerp. Both Spurs and Antwerp won their opening Group J matches and a win for either side on Thursday will take them a giant step towards the knock-out stages, for which the top two teams from each group qualify.
