Arsenal v Borussia Dortmund: Injury News Ahead of Champions League Game.


In their fifth game of the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League, Arsenal will be facing Borussia Dortmund who are presently Group D leaders with twelve points. The Gunners have seven points.

Arsenal will be playing at the Emirates Stadium and ahead of the clash, Arsene Wenger has revealed the latest news regarding players' fitness.

This one is a boost for Arsenal. Laurent Koscielny whose absence have made Wenger's side suffer a lot in their last few matches is back in the squad. While the Frenchman was out as a result of an injury, Arsenal struggled to win games and easily lost their leads. He should start tonight.

Elsewhere, Wojciech Szczesny, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere have been ruled out due to various fitness issues. Walcott is still suffering from the groin injury he sustained while on international duty with the England national team. Szczesny was unable to finish up the Manchester United clash as he was subbed after picking up an injury from trying to clear a cross. Wilshere also limped off during the match. All three will miss tonight's crucial encounter with the German outfit.

Wilshere's is a serious ankle sprain and when asked about the length of the injury, the manager said that he will have to wait for results from a medical practitioner.

Expect Damian Martinez to start in goal for Arsenal today. Hope we win.
