Mesut Ozil is expected to retain his place in Arsene Wenger’s starting lineup when Arsenal take on FC Basel tonight.

The Gunners picked up a hard earned point away to PSG in their opening game of the competition and sit at the top of Group A.

Wenger does have a decision to make in midfield following the injury to Francis Coquelin.  Summer signing Granit Xhaka is expected to step in, following a string of impressive performances since making the move from Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Olivier Giroud is also ruled out after being sent off in the Arsenal’s first Group A game against PSG.

The Chile international Alexis Sanchez is expected to retain his place up-front following an impressive performance against Chelsea on Saturday.

Arsenal go into the game on the back of three consecutive wins in the Premier League including a 3-0 victory over rivals Chelsea.
