Wenger takes the unusual step of naming his Champions League line up early.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taken the unusual step of naming his starting XI for the Champions League clash against Galatasaray – and the good news for Arsenal fans is that long term injured right back Mathieu Debuchy is set to make his return to first team action ahead of schedule.
The clash is not a particularly important one for Arsenal, with only a minute chance of them leapfrogging Borussia Dortmund in the battle to top the group, meaning that Wenger has gone for a rotated and inexperienced squad.
#afc v Gala (4-3-3): Szczesny; Debuchy, Mertesacker, Chambers, Bellerin; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Ramsey; Campbell, Sanogo, Podolski
