Given the fact Arsenal need PSG to drop points at home to Ludogrets in order to have any chance of getting top spot, there’s not much to look forward to in this game.
However, as the Gunners prepared for their trip to Switzerland in training today, there were plenty of positive signs to take from the week even if they don’t lead Group A.
After recovering from an injury that originally left him out of action for four months, Per Mertesacker finally returned to London Colney in order to join in with light training.
The BFG is expected to be back in contention by January, but with the unbeaten partnership of Kostafi it’ll be difficult for the captain to find his way back into the team.
Hector Bellerin stepped up his recovery by joining Mertesacker, whilst Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck both took part in full training, huge news for Wenger’s options up top.
