B Dortmund v Arsenal preview

Aaron Ramsey and Tomas Rosicky have both been ruled out for the

Gunners. Ramsey limped out of training on Monday with an ankle

complaint and has not been included in the 18-man squad along with

Rosicky, who is struggling with a knee injury. Thomas Vermaelen and

Jack Wilshere are other key players also missing, although new

signings Mikel Arteta, Per Mertesacker, Yossi Benayoun, Andre

Santos and Park Chu-young are available. “I think Aaron Ramsey has

been very influential in our team since the start of the season,

but it is a good opportunity that we now have a big squad and that

we can cope with it,” Wenger told Sky Sports News. “We have of

course three midfielders out – Diaby, Wilshere and Ramsey – and

it’s many but we still hopefully have a strong midfield tomorrow

[Tuesday].” Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Fabianski, Sagna, Koscielny,

Mertesacker, Djourou, Gibbs, Santos, Song, Frimpong, Arshavin,

Walcott, Arteta, Benayoun, Gervinho, Park, Chamakh, Van Persie
