"I've been playing in a lot of teams across Europe and I've been playing in teams where we have been doing well".
The Gunners are the top-scoring side in the competition with 23 goals in their ten games.
The 29-year-old was then asked whether he thinks Arsenal have turned their attention away from the Premier League and exclusively to the Europa League like United did last season. "I have not decided he will start but he is available and ready to start".
"I don't think Arsenal has a problem with its support. The target for us is to focus on our performance, win the game and accept the public judgment".
Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is trying to win the Europa League for the second year in a row after last season's triumph with Manchester United, but he insisted that Arsenal can't put all of their eggs in one basket and ignore the rest of the league campaign.
However the 29-year-old Armenian - who lifted the trophy with Jose Mourinho's Manchester United last season by beating Ajax in the final - is not taking anything for granted against manager Viktor Goncharenko's side. They threaten to do stuff and it doesn't quite happen but this is the first time I've seen a positive step from the fans.
After a dour first half, Arsenal found their footing and downed Stoke behind goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. "If they are in a quarter-final it means they are a very good opponent and they are noisy games to play". Viktor Goncharenko's side have won five of seven on their travels this season and six of their last nine Europa League away games, per Uefa.com. "We are going to give our best to win those games and also see where we are in Europa".
"You are a bit more in a situation where you have to defend well and attack well".
"Ideally you want the away leg first", said Wenger.
"I hope he will be available for Thursday but he couldn't play".
