LONDON (Sporting Alert) — The following are the starting lineup team sheets for today’s Champions League Group D game between Arsenal and Galatasaray at Emirates Stadium.
Today sees forward Alexis Sanchez making a return to the Arsenal starting XI, with Mathieu Flamini and Santi Cazorla also getting starting places as manager Arsene Wenger makes three changes from the team that drew 1-1 with Tottenham in the EPL at the weekend.
Danny Welbeck leads the attack again hoping to score some goals with Arsenal looking to bounce back from the opening fixture defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
England midfielder Jack Wilshere is on the bench along with Tomas Rosicky, Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell, but Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta both missed out because of injuries.
Galatasaray has named Wesley Sneijder, Felipe Melo, Burak Yilmaz and Goran Pandev in its starting team in the hunt for a victory on the road.
