Here Come the Belgians! Standard Standard Liege Preview/Team News

Scotland face Russian Federation in Moscow on October 10 before hosting San Marino three days later.

Tierney, who became the most expensive Scottish player of all-time when he made a £25 million ($31 million) move from Celtic in August, is still short of match fitness after recovering from a hernia operation.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has won 18 of his last 20 home Europa League matches across spells with Sevilla and the Gunners (W18 D1 L1), including the last five in a row.

Monday night's Premier League draw against Manchester United would have been a good result for Arsenal a few years ago since Old Trafford has always been a terror for the Gunners, but the fans were very disappointed with the result and especially the performance of the team and the coach.

Steve Clarke has announced his Scotland squad for our matches against Russia & San Marino.

"I'd like to get Kieran in the squad and have him as part of the group but at this moment in time it's more important that Kieran gets minutes on the pitch, gets himself back to full speed and when that happens I'm sure he'll be a valuable member of the squad".

Speaking about the Europa League, Emery said: "I think it's a great competition".

After defeats to Russian Federation and Belgium at home last month left Scotland second bottom of Group I, Clarke admitted his side's realistic chances of automatic qualification are now gone.

Standard Liege is a Belgium side and it's now second on its league table but the gunners will probably field their second squad including some players that are back from injury like Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney.

The Europa League is back this week for its usual insane slate of Thursday games, and one of the premier matchups on the schedule takes place in North London.
