Arsene Wenger has spoken about Arsenal needing to be on our toes and having our backs to the wall after losing the first Champions League group game. He has also warned his players not to assume that they will have the better of the Greek side, even though Olympiacos lost 3-0 at home to Bayern Muncih in their first game.
As he pointed out, two of their goals came late and the scoreline flattered the Germans, while we sinply have to up our game in every part of the pitch. Do that though, and Arsenal should be back on track. But if the Gunners fall short again there will also be questions asked of the manager, as he has chosen to leave the vast UCL experience of Petr Cech on the bench.
And there are four more changes to the team that won in Leucester; with Gibbs and Gabriel coming in to the back line, Coquelin coming back into the holding midfield position after recovering from his minor injury and the Ox replacing Ramsey on the right.
Bellerin, Koscielny, Gabriel, Gibbs
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez
Subs: Cech, Mertesacker, Debuchy, Ramsey, Monreal, Chambers, Campbell
To be fair, that starting XI should be more than capable of beating the Greek champions and I am confident that we will see a much better performance from the Gunners tonight.
