All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from the Emirates...
Arsene Wenger’s side are in a tough group with the German side, Anderlecht and Galatasaray, but they will believe they have enough to go through, most likely alongside Jurgen Klopp’s men.
A number of players were photographed once they had boarded the plane, including £16million man Danny Welbeck, who will get to experience European football after all this season.
His experience in the competition could prove invaluable to Arsenal, especially when you consider he has a goal against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu to his name.
In other news, Arsenal have suffered another injury blow with the news that Nacho Monreal will not be available for Tuesday’s match.
The Telegraph reports that the Spanish defender did not travel with his teammates although his injury is not believed to be serious and will not see him ruled out for long.
The news comes hot on the heels of Mathieu Debuchy’s setback, leaving the Gunners another injury or suspension away from having troubles at the back.
