Arsenal vs Montpellier takes place in the Champions League on Wednesday as the Gunner hope to claim their place in the knock out stages. The game is scheduled to kick off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Gunners are currently sitting second in Group B with 7 points from their opening four games. They sit a point behind Schalke who are in first place. Meanwhile Montpellier are bottom of the group with just a point from their first four games.
A home game at the Emirates against the basement club in Group B should mean this is an easy win for the Gunners. However, manager Arsene Wenger will surely remind his team that there are no easy games at this level in Europe. Wenger will try and push his team to treat this game with the correct amount of respect and ensure they claim a win that could see them claim their place in the knock out stages of the competition.
If Arsenal win today and Schalke also beat Olympiakos then the Germans and the London club will both guarantee themselves a spot in the next round.
However, if the Gunners are to win today then they will have to do it without influential speedy winger Theo Walcott. He injured his shoulder in their 5-2 win over Tottenham at the weekend and will be out for tonight's game.
However, defender Kieran Gibbs and forward Gervinho return from injury and are available for selection tonight for Wenger.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken about Walcott's injury ahead of the game, saying: "The injury he got during the game with his shoulder, we have to scan that and see if there is no damage. It should be short-term. We will miss Andre Santos as well, who has a muscle strain in his abdomen."
