Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has many defensive worries ahead of his sides Champions League clash away at Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal are without first choice right back, Mathieu Debuchy after he sustained a twisted ankle against Manchester City, an injury that will keep him out of action for up to 3 months.

Meanwhile, Wenger also reported in his pre-match press conference that new signing, Calum Chambers is “50/50” as he is suffering with tonsilitis. Another injury blow to the Arsenal defence is that of Nacho Monreal who has been ruled out of the tie after sustaining a back problem.

With defenders few and far between, Wenger will need to conjure up a master plan to prevent his defence from being caught out and overrun by the Germans.

Last time out, Arsenal were victors in Germany with a 1-0 win thanks to a solitary Aaron Ramsey goal for the Gunners. Can Arsenal claw out a result again against Dortmund despite their amass of injuries at the back?
