Arsenal team sit 2nd in this group, 5 points behind Dortmund, with two wins and one draw in four games. The only defeat came at the hands of the German team as the Gunners lost their opening match 2-0 in Dortmund. Last time out they were leading Anderlecht 3-0 just before the hour mark but an extraordinary collapse saw the game finish 3-3. Furthermore, Arsenal have lost their last two domestic matched against Swansea City and the struggling Manchester United, both by 1-2.
Damian Martinez may be forced to play in goal with David Ospina out and Wojciech Szczesny a doubt. Olivier Giroud is ineligible but Wenger has no more injury concerns. Danny Welbeck will lead the attack once again while Laurent Koscielny could make a surprise return to action.
Borussia Dortmund are currently at top of the group having won all the four matches so far. After the win over Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp’s side won 3-0 at Anderlecht and 4-0 at Galatasaray. They also beat Gala 4-1 in Dortmund on Matchday 4. But Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently struggling on the domestic front and are hovering just above the relegation places. At the weekend, though, Borussia Dortmund disappointed their fans once again, with the team dropping a two-goal advantage in the match against newcomers Paderborn.
Key player Marco Reus suffered an injury during that game and he will be out for a couple of months. Ciro Immobile is widely expected to lead the line while Hummels, Sven Bender, Kirch, Sokratis, Blaszczykowski and Nuri Sahin are all doubtful.
Arsenal have only managed to keep the two clean sheets in their last eleven matches played in all competitions now while Dortmund have won five and lost one of their last six away games in the UCL.

Probable lineups:
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny; Gibbs, Monreal, Mertesacker, Chambers; Arteta, Ramsey; Cazorla, Sanchez, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Welbeck.
Borussia Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Piszczek, Durm, Subotic, Ginter; Kehl, Gundogan; Aubameyang, Kagawa, Mkhitaryan; Immobile.
