Ostersunds FK have welcomed Arsenal ahead of their Europa League match with humour

Swedish side Ostersunds have welcomed Arsenal ahead of their Europa League fixture in humorous fashion.

Arsene Wenger`s side will travel to Scandinavia for Thursday`s round of 32 fixture against the Swedish Cup holders.

Ostersunds have sent messages to Arsenal in the build up to the match on social media, with the latest poking fun at the cold temperatures which the Gunners will face.

Via the club`s official Twitter account, Ostersunds wrote: We are ready for you @Arsenal, Did we mention our new locker rooms?

An image depicting an igloo dressing room with the players` shirts hung up accompanied the tweet, soon becoming a viral hit online.

The northern Swedish city has been registering minus temperatures this week, with similar weather conditions expected for Thursday`s night match.

In the dugout, Wenger will come up against George Potter, the only British manager left in European competition this season.

Potter, a former Stoke, Southampton and West Brom left-back, has overseen the rise of the small club, who were only founded in 1996.
