Predicted Arsenal XI to play Anderlecht - Martinez to make debut

Here's the potential Arsenal side to play Anderlecht in the Champions League.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was left frustrated after the Gunners could only manage a draw against Hull City over the weekend.

A late Danny Welbeck goal was enough to secure Arsenal a point but he’s since been criticised for the way he responded to questions in an interview after the game.

Attention now quickly turns to Anderlecht and Arsenal backing up their win against Galatasaray, which was enabled due to a superb Welbeck hat-trick.

It won’t be an easy game for the Gunners due to the fact they’re away from home and due to the large number of injuries Wenger is currently managing in the first team.

Goalkeeper Damian Martinez is expected to make his Champions League debut with David Ospina joining the injury list and Wojciech Szczesny suspended after a red card in that win against Galatasaray.

Here is Arsenal’s potential side for the match.

Arsenal: Martinez, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Chambers, Gibbs, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Wilshere, Cazorla, Sanchez, Welbeck
