Injury Report for Arsenal vs. Dortmund: Gnabry, Gibbs Traveling with Team, Wilshere Staying Home

Kieran Gibbs will make the trip to Westfalenstadion after all. - Shaun Botterill

The Professor's press conference looking toward tomorrow's Clash of the Titans with Jürgen Klopp's team just wrapped up -- including news on who's potentially in and out.

Via the magic of Twitter, there's a series of updates on tomorrow's Arsenal vs. Borussia Dortmund, which clearly has huge implications on the Champions League fortunes of not only those two teams, but also Napoli, who's also in the mix for qualifying out of this year's Group of Death. (We can rule Marseille out at this point, right?)

Arsene Wenger reported that (good news!) Serge Gnabry and Kieran Gibbs will be part of the squad going to Germany and ostensibly able to start. Jack Wilshere, however -- a late scratch in Sunday's Liverpool match due to an ankle injury -- is staying in London and will undergo physio testing on Thursday to determine whether he's available for the match at Old Trafford this coming Sunday. If he doesn't play Sunday, he'll also be bubble-wrapped for the upcoming international break (with friendlies against Chile and Germany, happening while less-fortunate Euro teams duke it out for World Cup spots).

Also, there was a trollific retort to Klopp's awesome interview carried in the Guardian earlier this week that likened Arsenal to a symphony and Dortmund to Metallica and Slayer.

Seriously, though, these managers are the best. Everyone good with these teams going through and leaving Rafa Benitez's Napoli in the dust?
