Aaron Ramsey and Thomas Rosicky will be out of action for Arsenal's fixture against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night, but what do the fans make of the Gunners' chances against the German giants?

Lovro Hunter was tallying up the list of squad players who are already missing in action, and was uncertain of his club's chances.

The dejected Arsenal fan said: “Great, them two along with [Jack] Wilshere and [Thomas] Vermaelen, we're screwed if the others won't play well.”

But Kazeem Shabiolegbe remained positive, suggesting that the team still had enough depth to compete.

He said: “Don't worry boys, with those players that are injured Arsenal can still win the game.”

Dave Doyle got tactical and saw a way out of the set back, that sees the Czech attacking midfielder Rosicky miss the game against his former Bundesliga club.


Doyle said: “Another two important players out? Our midfield will struggle in this one. I suggest a defensive play and then we will kill them come the second match.”

Meanwhile, Kaiser Militant Waseem placed Arsenal's faith in their young winger and England international Theo Walcott, who has so far scored ten goals in Europe.

He said: “Walcott is the one, watch.”

Leigh Michael was curious about the fragility of the north London club's squad, adding: “I strongly believe our players are made out of paper.”

But Andrew McKibbin believed the reason behind the omission of Rosicky had more to do with the Gunners' rigorous pre-match preparation.

He said: “Maybe Rosicky is getting his hair straightened.”
