Shkodran Mustafi is Arsenal's only fitness concern heading into a final Europa League Group H contest against BATE Borisov other than long-term absentee Santi Cazorla, with Arsene Wenger hopeful that the centre-back will return for Sunday's (10 December) trip to Southampton.
Arsenal have already progressed to the last-32 of the Europa League with the top spot, but they still have something to play for after having dropped points in each of the last two European matches.
"You can do ice skating by bringing your child on and just making sure nothing happens to him, or (you can do) ice skating violently". "I think we missed an opportunity on Saturday to take advantage of that, because we were physically quite strong in the game".
Thanks to Wenger's rotation policy, Arsenal players should be stronger and fresher, and we have hardly any injuries to contend with for a change.
With FK Crvena Zvezda and FC Koln level on points in second and third, BATE will be hoping for a draw in Belgrade that would - under condition they record a win in London - result in the Belarusian side joining the Gunners in the next stage of the competition. Mustafi has a little thigh problem, but it's a small one.
