How Anderlecht plan to dismantle Arsenal in Champions League tonight

Flamini Arsenal

Anderlecht coach Besnik Hasi speaks ahead of his side’s Champions League clash against Arsenal tonight.

Anderlecht will not have it easy against Arsenal in the Champions League Group D tonight, but coach Besnik Hasi has a plan.

The 42-year-old has identified the area where the Gunners are at their best and plans to use it to his team’s advantage at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium in Brussels.

 

Arsenal are indeed very strong in midfield and will be favourites against Anderlecht.

England international Jack Wilshere is likely to start tonight’s match, and his current form and confidence suggests that he will be a key player against the Belgium giants.

Alexis Sanchez had a fantastic game against Hull City at the Emirates Stadiuim in the Premier League at the weekend (click here to read more), and the Chile international’s pace could destroy the Anderlecht defence.

Hasi has done well to identity Arsenal’s strength, but it will depend on his players how they stop the Gunners in midfield.

On paper, Arsenal should win this match with ease, but the North London club have shown this season that they can slip up from time to time.
