Schalke vs. Arsenal: Lineups

Arsenal travel to Germany hoping to avenge their 2-0 loss at home to Schalke 04 two weeks ago, and they'll try to do so with a front four of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla. There's enough firepower there to put a major dent in the Bundesliga side's back line, so the visitors will have to hope that their wobbly-looking defensive unit will be able to hold out against Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

If it doesn't Schalke will almost certainly win Group B. Thomas Vermaelen and Laurent Koscielny in particular need to up their game if the Gunners want to avoid a difficult draw in the knockout round.

Schalke 04 (4-2-3-1): Lars Unnerstall, Christian Fuchs, Joel Matip, Benedict Howedes, Atsuto Uchida; Roman Neustadter, Jermaine Jones; Ibrahim Afellay, Lewis Holtby, Jefferson Farfan; Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Vito Mannone; Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker, Bacary Sagna; Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere; Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla, Theo Walcott; Olivier Giroud
