Star Set to Return for Arsenal vs Dinamo Zagreb

Arsenal FCArsenal needed decisive own goals for their first two victories of the season, however, the Gunners were brilliant against Stoke City and deservedly won their last Premier League contest.

The North Londoners will now be focusing on the Champions League and their opening game is against Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday night.

The Gunners will be playing away from home and should be confident going into the fixture after winning back to back games. Not to forget, so far Arsenal have won both their away fixtures this season.

As far as the team news is concerned, expect German international Per Mertesacker to return for Arsenal vs Dinamo Zagreb. The World Cup winning star missed the last three games because of illness but now he is fully fit (PhysioRoom).

Wenger claimed (Official Website):

“He (Mertesacker) should not worry. He should just come back and play. It is good we have four centre backs and this produces a problem”

Whether the German international will get straight back into the starting XI against Zagreb or start on the bench, we shall see.

Wenger will probably make few changes in the starting lineup that played against Stoke City keeping in mind next weekend’s crucial contest against Chelsea.

    I will still go with Koscielny and Gabriel. And rotate in mid-field as well, give Arteta a game and maybe rest Cazorla or Ramsey. Its a shame that Rosicky is not available also. I think Joel Campbell should also get some game time in Croatia.
