Arsenal vs Olympiakos. UEFA Champions League. Emirates Stadium. 30th September 2015.
Arsenal welcome Greek champions Olympiakos to the Emirates stadium Tuesday night for their second game of the 2015/2016 UEFA Champions League campaign.
The game which is expected to kick-off at exactly 7:45pm BST will be without some of Arsenal’s key stars after the manager revealed the team news ahead of the vital clash.
Arsene Wenger had this to say when asked on the return to training of key defensive midfield star Francis Coquelin: “He has been back since yesterday and I will have to see how he responds to two days of training, but he looks alright.”
While the manager also confirmed that club captain Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini will be absent for the clash tonight due to “slight muscular problems”.
“Both have slight muscular problems, but I think Flamini has a scan today and Arteta certainly as well.”
“No, they are not big injuries. It is a question of days.” Wenger added.
