Arsene Wenger has taken a 19-man squad with him to Greece for tomorrow night’s Champions League clash with Olympiakos.

The boss held his pre-match press conference earlier today and for once there was very little to report on the injury front as we didn’t suffer any fresh injuries at the weekend.

Koscielny came through the Sunderland game showing no signs of the hip injury that caused him trouble last week while Walcott also got a few minutes under his belt after recovering from a calf strain.

Unfortunately none of our current injured players are ready to return just yet so the likes of Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Alexis Sanchez, Mikel Arteta, Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky are all still out.

It means the boss will have the same squad to choose from as he did against Sunderland but we’ve decided to take youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide to Greece so he’ll be available for selection.

Here is the 19-man squad for tomorrow’s game:

Cech; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Flamini, Ramsey; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Özil, Campbell; Giroud, Ospina, Debuchy, Gibbs, Gabriel, Walcott, Chambers, Iwobi, Reine-Adelaide

    LVG has been blamed for excessive emphasis on possession football.The same can be said of Wenger.
    Take it from me ,assuming Arsenal qualify,the gunners are there to make up the numbers.Even if they have a fully fit squad,I doubt they can ever win the cl under the fm.
    His one dimensional style of posssession football and reluctance to shoot until there is a99.99 chance of a goal, is the reason.
    They have been undone many times by quality team playing counter attacking soccer ie MU/Pool/Chelsea/and even Hull.
    So don’t be surprised his proud record comes to an end.

    Don’t be surprised if the sun rises tomorrow . Regardless if we win or lose, life goes on, wenger will still manage Arsenal and 99.99% of fans will still support the club and if someone decides not to then good riddance.
    Moaning and complaining and blaming all misfortunes on wenger alone is obviously not ( in your words) one dimensional?

    You have no clue about football if you think Arsenal has no chance of winning CL
