Ozil and Mertesacker look calm, as Flamini gets ready to head back to former club…
Arsenal stars Mesut Olzil, Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini have been snapped heading to training before their vital Champions League opener away to Marseille.
Flamini is expected to start against the side where he started his career. The French anchorman made 24 appearances for Marseille in his debut season before moving to Arsenal.
Ozil, Arsenal’s record £42m signing will make his first Champions League start for the Gunners – who have never won the competition, and will be eager to improve on last season’s performance, where they got knocked out in the last 16.
Arsenal know they need a good result in France, as they have been dealt an incredibly tough group, where they will welcome Napoli and Borussia Dortmund to the Emirates before the new year.
