Arsenal have been hit with their same injury issues, as usual, and their fans have not taken too kindly to the line up that Wenger has been forced into selecting.
Arsene Wenger has specialised in Champions League cock-ups for the last decade or so and he has now named two joke players in a must-win CL game for his beloved club.
Saying all of this is irrelevant when you consider how much Gunners’ fans love a good meltdown. Whether its over a social media mistake, a minor injury or a twitter poll, the Arsenal fan base love a psychological collapse.
With Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere out injured, amongst several others, here is the line-up that le Professeur opted for:

Not so bad, you might say?
Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez… Oh no, Arsenal fans were not at all pleased to see Flamini and Campbell in there.
@Arsenal put Per in the bin

Poor Per wasn’t too popular a selection either…
@Arsenal where is Gunnersaurus

The team mascot, a giant green dinosaur, was far more popular than Flamini or Campbell this evening, too.

4 players that shouldn't be starting for Arsenal are playing tonight. Mertesacker, Campbell, Flamini, Giroud

Joel Campbell really wasn’t too popular with the fans, again.
Id start Adelaide over Campbell no joke

Then there’s the good old bank balance talk…
Flamini starts in a do-or-die Champions League tie when we have over 60m in the bank. What a time to be alive.
