Ludogorets will hope for a much-improved showing having fallen to a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the reverse fixture. The hosts have won back-to-back games since the loss at the Emirates, however, scoring nine goals in that time.
Arsenal are on a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions and will look to improve their chances of securing top spot with another victory here. Indeed, they’ve won their last four away matches and will be confident of adding a fifth here.
Ludogorets are expected to put in a stronger showing at home, but Arsenal should win here.
Arsenal – Theo Walcott is out for Arsenal having missed the 4-1 win over Sunderland at the weekend and may not be risked for here, while Santi Cazorla is expected to sit out ahead of Sunday’s north London derby.
