Arsenal open their Champions League campaign with a difficult fixture away at French champions PSG on Tuesday, as Arsene Wenger’s side once again go hunting for European glory for the 17th successive season.
The Emirates faithful have had a frustrating past decade in Europe however with the Gunners being knocked out at the round of 16 stage for 6 consecutive years, and failing to reach the final since 2005/2006 where they eventually lost to Barcelona.
Having had a relatively successful season last year, their best Premier League finish in a decade – fans will be hoping they can go one step (or two, or three, or four steps) further this year by challenging for the Champions League trophy.
Considering the Gunner’s spent a sizeable amount of money in the summer transfer window too, on the likes of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Perez, the faithful should have reason to be optimistic, and it could be some of their new boys start the opening fixture against the their Ligue 1 opposition next week.
Our local Arsenal fans at the Tavern think they should line-up like this if they want to topple the French giants, do you agree?
