Arsenal were comfortable 4-0 winners over PSV Eindhoven on matchday one in the Champions League and they should have few problems seeing off Lens next in Group B.

Another clean sheet for Arteta's men
Arsenal have kept five clean sheets in their first nine games in all competitions and the unbeaten Gunners look a seriously difficult team to break down this season.
They were never in much danger against PSV when they won commandingly and Lens look to be a weaker side so another shutout may well be on the cards.
Arteta's side will expect to control possession and enjoy the better territory than their hosts and if they get in front they have demonstrated their ability to use their game management several times recently to ensure they come away with all three points while keeping their opponents out.
Lens have scored only seven goals in their first seven Ligue 1 matches and, while they did manage to get on the scoresheet in a 1-1 draw at Sevilla in their first Group B encounter, getting the better of a crack Gunners backline looks a tough task.

Arsenal should be dominant force in Lens
The Gunners are set to be on the front foot from the off at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis and it would be no surprise to see them leading at the break.
They were 2-0 up at the interval at the weekend at Bournemouth when they eventually cruised to another 4-0 success, and were also in front early on before going on to win at Brentford in the League Cup in the previous game.
This European clash can follow a similar pattern as Arsenal go about underlining their Champions League credentials with what should be a fairly routine victory.

Odegaard influence clear to see
Martin Odegaard has, once again, been a crucial man for Mikel Arteta's side as they have made an unbeaten start to the campaign.
The Norway international has scored four goals and got one assist in all competitions so far and was on target with the fourth and final goal at the Emirates versus PSV.
The midfielder is the key cog in the Gunners' midfield and likes to drive his side forward, while he is no stranger to a shot from distance and is also one of Arsenal's regular penalty-takers.
