CONFIRMED: Arsenal line-up v Anderlecht in the Champions League

Emirates Outside Night

Here's the side Arsene Wenger has selected to play Anderlecht at the Emirates Stadium this evening.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Alexis, Cazorla, Welbeck

Subs: Martinez, Bellerin, Flamini, Rosicky, Podolski, Walcott, Sanogo

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be hoping for a much more comprehensive performance than his side managed against Anderlecht, when these teams met in Belgium.

The Frenchman is without Jack Wilshere, who is missing because of the virus which recently affected Aaron Ramsey, but Arsenal’s injury list is easing ahead of an important part of the season.

Arsenal can move onto nine points with a win, which should be enough to see them through to the last 16 round of the competition.

The magical points mark is normally ten but Anderlecht and Galatasaray only have one point each heading into the games this evening, which leaves them both needing a miracle to have any chance of getting out of the group.

Qualification would also provide Wenger with the luxury of being able to rest key players in final group games, as the Premier League action continues to come thick and fast.
