The Gunners have won their last 5 games on the trot and no doubt Arsene Wenger will be hoping that this form will continue into Wednesday’s game.
After having several injury worries emerge from the 3-1 win at Sunderland, the London side will be buoyed by the fact that Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud have been declared fit for the time.
Ozil had been suffering from an illness during much of Saturday’s game and Giroud had twisted his knee but both players have overcome their problems in time.
Alongside that, Wenger will be boosted by the full returns of some of their key defensive players such as Per Mertesacker who is backer after a knock whilst club captain Thomas Vermaelen is set to make his full return to the first team after missing much of the summer with a back injury.
For Marseille, it will be a case of continuing their recent momentum which helped L’OM overcame a slow start to the season.
The French side have won 3 out of their first 5 games this season and are currently placed 4th in Ligue 1 as they continue their quest for the title.
Marseille will also be boosted by having no major injury worries in their side meaning that they will be fully prepared to cope with whatever arsenal might throw at them.
Look for several of their key attacking forces such as Dmitri Payet, Andre Ayew and Andre-Pierre Gignac to give the Arsenal defence a tough time as they look to try and get themselves something from the game.
Many of L’OM’s players will also be driven to avenge the defeat that they suffered in the same fixture two years ago when Arsenal secured a last gasp victory to win 1-0 in the group stages.
L’OM are likely to give everything they got to take Arsenal to their absolute limit but with confidence high within The Gunners’ squad, it looks like Arsene Wenger’s side will have just enough to emerge as victors.
