After a convincing win over Blackburn, we have another tricky away game on Wednesday. The Champions League nights are back and it's important for us to start well. We usually struggle in Eastern Europe and our record in Kiev isn't pleasant at all. The timing of this match is excellent though. We don't have to worry about weather conditions or bad pitch.

Unfortunately we have some injury concerns. Here is the boss report after today's match:

“[Samir] Nasri is a big doubt for that, Eboue we might lose and Clichy too. We have to assess them tomorrow. It doesn't look too good.”

So, assuming this trio is out, I would like to see something like this:

-------Almunia------
Sagna----Toure----Djourou-----Gallas
Walcott---Cesc----Song------Denilson
Ade--------RvP​

Come on Arsenal!!! I'll be there in the stands!!!

Well, this season the club have claimed some big results against teams which had proven to be more difficult in past seasons. Then again, the club forget how to play in Eastern Europe, so it's a very different frontier.

Gallas looks absolutely shocking in defence, its only a matter of time till we play a side whose not playing absolutely crap like blackburn and newcastle and concede. we really need to do something about this.

Maybe we'll see Vela on the wing?

Attack, attack, attack. This is the best course to take for this game even if it is an away game. Hope Wenger doesn't get too cagey about this one. We can kill them early in this game if we go at them. Their defence is suspect. Going forward they are decent themselves and if Bangoura and Milevsky play they will have to be watched. Give Theo licence to go at their back four and he will frighten them to death. It's good that we play this game early in Kiev before the temperatures plummet in a few months time.
