Ghana international Samuel Mensah is looking forward to facing Arsenal in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32.

The defender, who plays for Swedish club Ostersunds FK, believes that it will be a big experience for him and his teammates.

English giants Arsenal will travel to Jamkraft Arena on February 15, 2018 before hosting Ostersunds a week later at the Emirates Stadium.

“The game against Arsenal is going to be a great experience for us and I am particularly looking forward to it. It is going to be exciting,” Mensah told Footballmadeinghana.

“Personally, Arsenal are one of the clubs that I like because they play good football.

“We will prepare well for them [so we can record a convincing victory in the first leg before we go to London] since the stakes are high.”

Ostersunds, who are campaigning in the Swedish Allsvenskan, have had a fairytale campaign in the Europa League so far.

They finished as Group J winners and becoming the first Swedish club to reach the knockout stage.

Mensah, 28, has made 10 appearances in this season’s Europa League.
