Confirmed Arsenal XI vs. Borussia Dortmund: Speedy Young Gunner Gets Suprise Start

Arsenal have confirmed their starting line up for the match against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League tonight, which is the opening game of the group stage for both sides.

The Gunners have started the new season in decent form, although a series of injuries have hampered their fluidity.

They have managed a solitary win in the league, on the opening day against Southampton, when they beat the south coast club 2-1.

Elsewhere, there have been draws against Everton and Leicester away from home.

The weekend saw them host Manchester City in the league, and they managed a 2-2 draw against the reigning Premier League champions, although they did lead going into the latter stages of the contest.

A series of injuries have hit the first team, however, with the extended absence of Mathieu Debuchy now hampering the squad even further. As a result, youngster Hector Bellerin starts against Dortmund, who finished second in the Bundesliga last season.

Danny Welbeck also starts up front, continuing on from the weekend. Welbeck is one of few Arsenal options in that position after the injury suffered by Olivier Giroud.

The line up is as follows:
