Arsene Wenger is back in North London.
OK, so he may have just been pictured hopping on a bus in Finchley, but Le Professeur is back in town ahead of tonight’s crucial Europa League clash with Rennes.
The Gunners trail the French side 3-1 after a disastrous first leg in Brittany, but could be inspired by the sight of the club’s greatest ever manager in the stands, if that is indeed why Wenger is back in town.

Failure to overturn a two goal deficit against the Ligue Un outfit tonight will mean Unai Emery’s men will have to consolidate a top four spot in the Premier League in order to qualify for next year’s Champions League.
The Gunners currently lie in fourth place, two points ahead of Manchester United, who they beat 2-0 last Sunday to move into the Champions League places.
Hopefully Emery’s men can be stirred by Wenger’s presence tonight and turn in a memorable European performance in order to advance to the quarter-finals and beyond.
