Arsenal star Mesut Ozil Arsenal transfer news

Arsenal take on Bulgarian outfit Ludogerets in the Champions League at the Emirates tonight on Match Day 3.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger once again decided to start David Ospina over Petr Cech in goal.

There were few other changes with Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez, in form forward Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil all starting for the Gunners.

Wenger revealed in his pre-match press conference that he has a full strength squad against the Bulgarian outfit and that nobody picked up injuries against Swansea City over the weekend.

The two notable absentees are Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey. Both have recovered from injury but have not been deemed match fit for the clash against the Bulgarian giants and will therefore be rested.

The Gunners are currently in second place in Group A by virtue of goal difference. A victory could however, take the Gunners into first place depending on the result of the PSG v Basel game.

Arsenal confirmed line-ups: Ospina, Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Gibbs, Coquelin, Cazorla, Walcott, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis

Subs: Cech, Gabriel, Monreal, Xhaka, Elneny, Iwobi, Lucas
