Arsenal have received a huge boost ahead of their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich after Arjen Robben is ruled out, according to reports from the Express.
The 31-year-old has been sidelined for the last month with a groin injury and has been confirmed by the Bundesliga giants that he will not feature in midweek.
Despite picking up a good run of form in the Premier League in recent weeks, the Gunners have been struggling heavily in Europe, losing their first two group matches against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos.
This means that they are sitting last in their group and are in need of a win against Bayern in order to keep their qualification chances alive.
However, even without the services of Robben, Pep Guardiola has also received a boost ahead of his trip to the Emirates as on-form striker Robert Lewandowski has been cleared to feature despite his injury at the weekend.
