The Gunners have won both their home games in this competition so far, beating Besiktas 1-0 in the qualifying round and defeating another Turkish side, Galatasaray, 4-1 in the match day 2 of the group stages.
Last time out they secured their first away, scoring two late goals to beat Anderlecht in Belgium.
The result was harsh on the Belgian champions, who have never won in England, but it left their manager, Besnik Hasi in no doubt that his side have the tools to cause Arsenal problems.
“I think we have more qualities than just a counter-attack,” Hasi said.
“We have the quality to play football and I hope my young team tomorrow are really going to go for it.
“They’re going to make a good game like they did at home against Arsenal, without complexities and just play their game. And in the end if Arsenal is better than us then we will congratulate them.
“But still I think in the first game we didn’t get what we deserved.”
Their attacking aspirations suffered a blow in the lead up to the game with the news that Steven Defour suffered a calf injury last time out. The 26 year old is likely to miss the clash in London.
Arsenal meanwhile could give Theo Walcott a run out. The England man made his comeback in the 3-0 win over Burnley last time out and could start his first game in 9 months. Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere will miss out however.
