The Gunners are sitting pretty on top of Group F, ahead of Napoli on goal difference, while Marseille are rooted at the bottom with zero points.
The French outfit are expected to continue to struggle for points, having lost each of their last seven Champions League games (their worst run ever in the competition). To compound their woes, they have won on just one of their seven trips to England in the Champions League. Although last season's encounter between the teams at the Emirates ended in a goalless draw, Arsenal are at their potent best this time around. They are leading the English Premier League and easily dealing with any test that has come their way and will be with in-form, Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who has scored two of Arsenal's three goals against Marseille in Europe.
Arsenal is expected to field a close to full strength team with English flyer Theo Walcott edging towards full match fitness and anticipated to make a cameo off the bench. While Marseille has some injury concerns, missing key players Andre Ayew, Rod Fanni & Dimitri Payet.
