Arsenal face CSKA Moscow on Thursday night at Ashburton Grove and will be hoping to put the tie to bed before a tough trip to Russia next week.


Coming off the back of a good win against Stoke, albeit with an overall poor performance, Arsenal have won their last four games in all competitions and haven’t lost a game in almost a month. Of course, they’ve been helped immensely by not playing that much football.
