    • Good afternoon from the Emirates

      Hello SunSport family and welcome to coverage of tonight’s Europa League clash between Arsenal and PSV. Two points separate the pair after peeling away from the competition at the top of Group A.

      Ruud Van Nistelrooy will hope his return to the Emirates will be a positive one as he looks to put a dent in the Gunners perfect start to their European campaign. However, it won’t be an easy task. Mikel Arteta’s men have won every game here this season. Another one tonight would see them qualify for the group stages with two games to spare.

      Meanwhile, Ajax come to North London in rampant form themselves. They are off the back of a 6-1 win over Utrecht leaving them one point off top spot in the Eredivise. A 5-0 Europa League trouncing of Zurich last week will have filled the Dutch side with confidence heading into this one.

      Can Van Nistelrooy get his revenge over the Gunners, or will it be Mikel Arteta’s day again in North London?

      The action is set to begin at 18:00 and we will bring you all the gossip and team news as we build up to kick-off.
