Arsenal face one charge of violating security regulations, because of blocked stairways in the away section.

Arsene Wenger admits he thought Arsenal's Europa League home game against Cologne on Thursday night would be called off after crowd issues.

Along the same lines, one reason for his comment is likely the reluctance to make the issue a hang-up for his players by so publicly talking about it, and he similarly denied there was a complex about Chelsea - "no, personally, I don't think so, no". "We won here [at Emirates Stadium] a year ago, we won the FA Cup final and on penalties in the Community Shield, so let's just continue to focus on the quality of our game and not too much where we play". But I must say our supporters dealt well with the situation and there was no aggravation.

Conte added that the game against Arsenal should go ahead tomorrow despite an explosive device being detonated on a tube train near the club's west London stadium yesterday. "We managed to put some pressure on them in the second-half which led to them making mistakes and we eventually scored", Elneny told beIN SPORTS.

"They (Cologne fans) were very clever".

Arsenal blamed the selling of tickets by touts for the crowd problems which resulted to thousands of seats designated for home fans being occupied by German fans all around the stadium.

Four arrests were made on suspicion of public order offences as extra police were deployed to the scene.

"Chelsea have the same objective as us, they want to challenge for the title so it's a big game this weekend".

"For sure when you start the game you try to keep always the right discipline, but in both situations I think you have to see very well if there was the red card or not".

Earlier reports suggested as many as 20,000 Cologne fans had gathered in London just hours before kick-off despite only 3000 tickets being made available to away supporters.

Against Mark Hughes' side, Arsenal created a lot of chances, but were unsuccessful in converting them.

"The overwhelming majority of our fans have represented the club, the city of Cologne, and German football happily and positively. I don't know. But certainly they (Cologne) had more people here than tickets so that was certainly the cause", he said at the post-match news conference.
