MATCH PREVIEW : Arsenal v Marseille Uefa Champions League 2012 -01 November-2011,20:45 CET

MATCH PREVIEW : Arsenal v Marseille Uefa Champions League 2012 -01 November-2011,20:45 CET .Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on his team to forget Saturday's momentous derby win over Chelsea and focus instead on qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a win over Marseille.
The Gunners' renaissance hit a new peak on Saturday when they stunned Chelsea with a 5-3 victory at Stamford Bridge.
They have now won eight of their last nine games and are within three points of the Barclays Premier League top four after recovering from a dreadful start.Watch Arsenal v Marseille Live Stream Online PC TV Video Free, Arsenal v Marseille Live Online Instant Streaming Internet TV Free, Arsenal v Marseille Live Soccer TV Channels Online, Arsenal v Marseille live streaming broadcast Online Today, Arsenal v Marseille Live Stream Online Video Coverage Now, Uefa Champions League live stream online HD TV Online, Arsenal v Marseille Live Stream Online HDTV Coverage Here.TEAM NEWS :Match Preview .Defenders Thomas Vermaelen and Carl Jenkinson have both been passed fit to play in Arsenal's Champions League match with Marseille on Tuesday.
Jenkinson suffered a knee injury away at Marseille two weeks ago, while Vermaelen is still working his way back to fitness after an Achilles problem.
Midfielder Yossi Benayoun is available after missing Saturday's win at Chelsea because of the terms of his loan deal.
However, striker Marouane Chamakh is out with a knee injury.
Kieran Gibbs (stomach) remains sidelined, along with midfielders Abou Diaby and Jack Wilshere and full-back Bacary Sagna (all ankle).
The potential return of both Jenkinson and Vermaelen will be a boost for the Gunners, whose shaky defence played a large part in their poor start to the league season.
But the Gunners have turned around their fortunes of late, having climbed to seventh in the Premier League courtesy of Saturday's 5-3 win at Chelsea.
They also top Champions League Group F following their last-gasp 1-0 victory over Marseille in France two weeks ago and can qualify for the last 16 with another victory on Tuesday.
However, manager Arsene Wenger expects a tough game against a Marseille side he feels look more comfortable away from home and who are in better shape mentally following three straight domestic wins.
"They are a side who can defend well with very physical and quick players on the break, so I believe that the counter attack suits them more than dominating the game," Wenger said.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Santos, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Jenkinson, Walcott, Song, Ramsey, Arteta, Van Persie, Gervinho, Fabianski, Rosicky, Park, Benayoun, Frimpong, Djourou, Arshavin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Miyaichi.
