Arsenal host Galatasaray tonight looking to get their first points of the Champions League campaign on the board. Arsene Wenger’s men were comfortably beaten by Dortmund in their Group D opener, but are firm favourites against the Turkish giants at the Emirates Stadium.
The Londoners will be buoyed by Gala’s woeful record on English soil – they’ve not won a game in their last nine – but injury issues are plentiful for their manager. Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta have joined the long list of names on the sidelines, while Abou Diaby won’t feature due to fitness fears. Jack Wilshere is in line to start, while Alexis Sanchez may be recalled after starting the North London Derby on the bench.
Galatasaray have no major concerns.
Here are the XIs
