Champions League: Schalke v Arsenal match preview
With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Kieran Gibbs and Abou Diaby all out injured, Arsene Wenger will need Arsenal to dig deep to get a result against Schalke tonight.
The Gunners will be out for revenge this evening after the last game between the two sides, in which Shalke won 2-0, ended Arsenal's 45 match unbeaten run at home against foreign clubs.
Jack Wilshere's recent return will be a boost after his 15 months injury left the Gunners limp in the middle of the park.
