There’s good news ahead of tomorrow night’s Champions League tie with Bayern Munich, as Gabriel returns having missed the 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday.
The Brazilian will come back into a squad which has thankfully not suffered any injuries from the game at Vicarage Road. Whether he starts remains to be seen as Arsene Wenger figures out best how to stop the red-hot Robert Lewandowski and a Bayern side that have won their last 12 games.
Speaking after the Watford win, Wenger spoke about making ‘one or two’ changes, perhaps keeping Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in reserve for the weekend, but it seems a tall order to beat Pep Guardiola’s side without them.
The one absence from the last Champions League game is David Ospina who has come back from international duty with a shoulder problem. How long he’s out for isn’t known just yet, but it means Petr Cech will play his first European game for the club since his £10m arrival in the summer.
