Arsene Wenger named a very strong Arsenal side for today’s clash – making just two changes from the team which defeated Crystal Palace in their English Premier League opener over the weekend.
The two players coming in are Nacho Monreal and Olivier Giroud, with Alexis Sánchez, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Mathieu Debuchy all starting as well.
At the other end, former Chelsea and Newcastle United forward Demba Ba starts up front for Besiktas and he is expected to be a handful for Arsenal, as the Turkish side looks to cause an upset.
