Around 500 Arsenal fans had been expected to attend the Europa League clash but it remains to be seen how many will make it to the 70,000-seater Olympic Stadium on Thursday night.

The escalating tensions between Russian Federation and Ukraine off the coast of Crimea have spilled over into football with UEFA deciding to relocate Arsenal's Europa League tie against FC Vorskla Poltava on Thursday to Kiev following the introduction of martial law in some parts of Ukraine.

It's not been plain sailing for Arsenal however, who won just two of those games (against Bournemouth and Vorskla) and drew three (against Liverpool, Wolves and Sporting Lisbon).

Igor Perduta's clumsy foul on Aaron Ramsey allowed the Welshman to double Arsenal's lead from the penalty spot as they took control of the game against opposition who offered little resistance.

UEFA is now working closely with the Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU) to ensure that the match goes ahead in the Olympiskiy stadium in Kyiv tomorrow.

The boat's passengers, in a party mood halfway through their journey, likely panicked when the vessel started to sink, he said. Local government official Richard Kikongo said: "A big storm hit". "It can be fine on land but bad weather on the lake".

Arsenal are already through to the Europa League's last 32 and will win the group with victory over a side they beat 4-2 in London in September.

Vorskla vice-president Oleh Lysak had expressed doubts on Wednesday about whether the Olympic Stadium would be able to host the game on such short notice.

"First of all, we need to respect UEFA's decision because it's not easy for Vorskla", he said. "Then [during the] 90 minutes, it's not a very big change".

The market has reacted accordingly to the likelihood of squad rotation with Arsenal priced at at 4/6 to come out on top against their inconsistent opponents. Teenage midfielder Emile Smith Rowe is also likely to get another start in the competition.

"We were ready to play in Poltava; we are ready to play in Kiev". We had a long trip but for us, it doesn't matter about where we play.
