Gunners eye Champions League progression against Dortmund

Arsenal will be looking to secure Champions League qualification when they take on German champions Borussia Dortmund at The Emirates Stadium this evening, Sky Sports reports.

The Gunners’ confidence is high with ten wins in their last 12 fixtures after a 2-1 victory away at Norwich City on Saturday. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has no fresh injury concerns following the win at Carrow Road, but could be prepared to drop defender Per Mertesacker. The German international had a torrid time against the Canaries and gifted the opening goal to Norwich striker Steve Morison. Johann Djourou looks the obvious replacement for Mertesacker in central defence.

Arsenal’s midfield is weakened slightly by the injured Jack Wilshere, who should return in the New Year. Arsenal are so far unbeaten in Group F and know that a victory in London will grant them qualification to the next phase of the Champions League. Their last fixture in Europe’s elite level competition was a 0-0 draw with French side Marseille at home.
