Arsenal have nothing to lose going into the first leg of our two Champions League clashes with Barcelona.
No one is expecting Arsenal to win so the best we can do is go out there and give everyone a good show. If we can come away with a win, even better.
Gabriel is still out for us, as well as Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere who are a few weeks away. Both midfielders are targeting our away leg at Camp Nou as their return.
Barcelona meanwhile have a strong squad. One of the best in the world. Let’s see what they can do.
Here are how the teams line up:
Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Kos, Monreal, Coquelin, Ramsey, Ozil, Ox, Alexis, Giroud.
Subs: Ospina, Chambers, Gibbs, Flamini, Campbell, Walcott, Welbz.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Piqué, Rakitic, Sergio, Alves, Iniesta, Suárez, Messi, Neymar, Mascherano, Alba.
Subs: Bravo, Munir, Sergi Roberto, Adriano, Aleix Vidal, Vermaelen, Mathieu.
