Arsenal fullback Cedric Soares insists there's no excuses going into tonight's Europa League clash with Molde.

The match will be stage on artificial turf.

But Cedric says, "[This type of pitch] is not something we see every day anymore but no excuses.

"We came here to play, we will have time to adapt in training and that's it.

"We are players, we need to adapt quick and this is also a quality, to adapt to the pitch and the ball, the weather. No excuses, we are here to play, to compete and get the three points.

"We played against Molde a few weeks ago, we knew it would be a tough game and it was, so we definitely expect a difficult game here.

"They have good players, quick, they also have a strong striker and they are always looking for spaces [behind us] and to spring quick counter-attacks as well so it will be a tough game, 100 per cent."
