Predicted Arsenal line-up to play Olympiakos: Strong side from Wenger

Arsenal Emirates

Here is how we predict Arsenal will line up for their match against Olympiakos:

To be played on Tuesday 29th September 2015 at 18:45. Venue: Emirates Stadium,

Odds: Arsenal 2/5, Draw 15/4, Olympiacos 13/2

Arsenal welcome Greek side Olympiakos to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening, with both teams looking for their first points of this season’s Champions League group stage.

Arsenal lost 2-1 to Dinamo Zagreb last time out while Olympiakos lost to Bayern Munich and with the German giants currently topping Group F, the Gunners will not want to slip too far behind them before their double-header next month.

Arsenal are without Danny Welbeck, Francis Coquelin, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and the suspended Olivier Giroud, while Mathieu Flamini has a 75 per cent chance of recovering from a hamstring injury.

Arsenal ran out 5-2 winners against Leicester City in the Premier League at the weekend, with Alexis Sanchez rediscovering his scoring form in dramatic fashion; and after his hat-trick against the Foxes, the Chilean international will be hoping to get on the score-sheet again later this week.

Below are the sides we predict will start this week’s match:
