Predicted Arsenal XI v Dortmund: Akpom & Martinez to start?

Chuba Akpom

How will the Gunners line up against Jurgen Klopp's side?

Arsene Wenger has never been a fan of change and that's why Arsenal fans can expect as little change as possible ahead of their Champions League tie with Borussia Dortmund tonight.

Some changes will be enforced, however, as Jack Wilshere's injury means the midfielder will miss out - and could be out for an extended period.

Wojciech Szczesny will also miss out, while David Ospina was already unavailable, meaning Damian Martinez should be in line for his second European appearance of the season.

Danny Welbeck, meanwhile, could also reportedly miss the Dortmund clash through injury and so could be replaced by Chuba Akpom.

Yaya Sanogo, of course, could stand in for Welbeck as Olivier Giroud is ineligible because he has not been registered for this season's Champions League campaign. But the 21-year-old has hardly impressed during his Emirates career and Arsenal boss Wenger could look to 19-year-old Akpom instead.
