Possible Arsenal Starting XI to face Marseille



Arsenal will face Marseille at the Emirates Stadium in the Group F tie, where a victory for the Gunners would see them keep a strong position in this tough group.

Olivier Giroud

Team News: Mikel Arteta picked up a knock against Southampton, but he is fit ahead of this game, while Mathieu Flamini is back from suspension. Theo Walcott is fit again but Lukas Podolski is few weeks away from full fitness.

Defence: Arsene Wenger would be looking to put up a strong team on Tuesday so expect the same defensive quartet that earned full three points for the Gunners in the last match. That means Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs and Sagna will start while Monreal or Vermaelen will have to warm the bench unfortunately.

Midfield: Arteta picked up a knock in the last game and could be replaced by Flamini. Jack Wilshere could also be rested while Tomas Rosicky could start in his place.

Forward: There is limited options in this department for Mr Wenger, so, Olivier Giroud will have take the leading role again.

Prediction: 2-0; Arsenal have won 6 of their last 7 matches in the Champions League (including qualifiers) and are firm favourites to win this tie as well.
