Arsenal take on Bundesliga hot-shots Borussia Dortmund this evening at the Emirates hoping to build on their impressive start to the season. 

The Gunners sit at the summit of the Premier League and will be looking to build on victories over Marseille and Napoli. 

Arsene Wenger will be without Mathieu Flamini, who misses out due to concussion, with the Frenchman not being risked ahead of the clash. Mikel Arteta is expected to come into the side as a like-for-like replacement. 

Flamini aside, Wenger could lineup with a similar side that destroyed Norwich 4-1 last Saturday. 

Arsenal's predicted XI (4-2-3-1): 

Goalkeeper: Wojciech Szczesny

Left Back: Kieran Gibbs

Centre Back: Laurent Koscienly

Centre Back: Per Mertesacker

Right Back: Bacary Sagna

Centre midfield: Mikel Arteta

Centre Midfield: Jack Wilshire

Left Wing: Santi Cazorla

Attacking Midfield: Mesut Ozil

Right Wing: Aaron Ramsey

Striker: Olivier Giroud
