Team News: Montpellier vs. Arsenal

It seems like a long time since our match against AC Milan last season, because, well, it has been a long time, but after a long wait, the Champions League is finally back.

After we came within a gnat`s chuff of overturning a 4-0 deficit at The Grove we had to watch Chelsea luck their way to a European Cup win whilst we had to dream about next season.

Well next season is here, and we begin our European journey away at Olivier Giroud`s old club, Montpellier.

Let`s see which of our boys have been tasked with getting our campaign off to a flier.

Arsenal: Mannone, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen ©, Gibbs, Diaby, Arteta, Cazorla, Gervinho, Podolski, Giroud.

Substitutes: Shea, Koscielny, Santos, Coquelin, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott

Obviously, the manager isn't taking this lightly and must believe it will be a more demanding game than is being made out. Very strong line up and bench without a thought for our game vs City.

Strong line up indeed, surprised Koscielny wasnt given a chance tonight. The manager as gone for continuity as he stated earlier. Hope the players deliver.

Hosts starting with a lot of energy and an early yellow card to Diaby. The Manager will be right to go for continuity, on this showing. We are settling well now.

Penalty call against us. The ref is a joke. Tackle was on the line.

What an open game! Pulsating but we need to tighten the play, not defending as well as our previous games. Great play from the Pod and the Forehead.

The penalty call against us was incredibly harsh but then we have had even worse decisions handed to us in the CL before. Good to be leading at half time. Perhaps time to hit Montpellier on the counter attack by bringing on AOC as a sub later on in the 2nd half.

They play a very tight defensive game and are physical with their crowd egging them on. We've got to support Jenks a lot more as he is being taken on a jolly ride at times, by Mounier(?). We need a goal to give us a breather. A game for calm heads until that time.

We've been holding on at times. But we are talking about the French champions here, at home. Arteta, bless him, plays as if he has been doing this all his life.
