Sporting Lisbon vs Arsenal Match Preview, Live Streaming

ARSENAL return to Europa League action on Thursday in Portugal against an in-form Sporting Lisbon.

Rarely if ever has a goal been celebrated more at the Emirates than Reiss Nelson's winner with almost the last kick of the ball on Saturday to crown a magnificent comeback from being 2-0 down at home to Bournemouth to win 3-2.

It's already been labelled the goal that will win the Gunners the title, but Manchester City will have plenty to say about that and there's a long way to go in the Premier League.

The Europa League won't be as high on their list of priorities especially with a tough London derby with Fulham upcoming on Sunday, but it's a winnable competition for them.

However, they face a tough ask on Thursday with Sporting on a fine run of form. Despite only drawing the first leg of the last round with Midtjylland, they went to Denmark and romped to a 4-0 win in the second leg.

They've also hammered Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany and beat Spurs at home in the Champions League, while winning six of their last seven games in the Portuguese league, although they are back in fourth place and a massive 15 points off runaway leaders Benfica.
