Match facts: Marseille v Arsenal

Marseille

UEFA milestones and competition statistics
• Marseille have scored 146 goals in the European Champion Clubs' Cup.

Summer transfers
• In: Florian Thauvin (LOSC Lille), Saber Khalifa (Évian Thonon Gaillard FC), Dimitri Payet (LOSC Lille), Giannelli Imbula (EA Guingamp), Mario Lemina (FC Lorient), Benjamin Mendy (Le Havre AC).

• Out: Morgan Amalfitano (West Bromwich Albion FC, loan), Foued Kadir (Stade Rennais FC, loan), Florian Raspentino (SC Bastia, loan), Rafidine Abdullah (FC Lorient), Abdel Omrani (AC Arles-Avignon, loan), Larry Azouni (FC Lorient, loan), Leyti N'Diaye (released), Modou Sougou (Évian Thonon Gaillard FC, loan), Chris Gadi (released), Sénah Mango (US Luzenac, loan), Najib Ammari (released).

International duty
• Six Marseille players were called up for senior duty during the international break: Steve Mandanda, Mathieu Valbuena, Payet, André-Pierre Gignac (France), André Ayew (Ghana) and Nicolas N'Koulou (Cameroon).

• Gignac won his first cap since the 2010 FIFA World Cup when he replaced Karim Benzema in France's goalless draw with Georgia on 6 September.

• Four days later Valbuena provided two assists as France won 4-2 in Belarus to secure a top-two finish in World Cup qualifying Group I.

General information
• Gignac scored in OM's first three games this season, his best start to a campaign.

• Lucas Mendes marked his first appearance of the campaign – a 2-1 defeat by AS Monaco FC on 1 September – with his first goal in 33 games. The 23-year-old's only previous strike for OM came on his club debut last October. He made it two in as many outings with Saturday's late equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Toulouse FC.

• Of Marseille's 21 wins in Ligue 1 last season, 18 were by a single goal and 12 ended 1-0.

Arsenal

UEFA milestones and competition statistics
• This is Arsenal's 16th successive UEFA Champions League campaign, longevity bettered only by Manchester United FC (18) and Real Madrid CF (17).

Summer transfers
• In: Mesut Özil (Real Madrid CF), Yaya Sanogo (AJ Auxerre), Mathieu Flamini (AC Milan), Emiliano Viviano (US Città di Palermo, loan).

• Out: Gervinho (AS Roma), Denílson (São Paulo FC), Andrey Arshavin (FC Zenit), Vito Mannone (Sunderland AFC), Sebastian Squillaci (SC Bastia), André Santos (CR Flamengo), Marouane Chamakh (Crystal Palace FC), Johan Djourou (Hamburger SV, loan), Francis Coquelin (SC Freiburg, loan), Joel Campbell (Olympiacos FC, loan).

• Arsenal paid in the region of €50m for Özil, three times their previous club record outlay of €16m for Arshavin in 2009.

International duty
• Eleven Arsenal players were on senior international duty last week: Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott (England), Per Mertesacker, Özil (Germany), Wojciech Szczęsny, Łukasz Fabiański (Poland), Bacary Sagna, Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud (France), Tomáš Rosický (Czech Republic) and Aaron Ramsey (Wales).

General information
• Arsenal have won five in a row in all competitions since starting their season with a 3-1 home defeat by Aston Villa FC on 17 August.

• Giroud has registered a goal in five of Arsenal's six fixtures this term, as many as he mustered in his first 16 outings in 2012/13. Saturday's goal at Sunderland AFC was the first he has scored outside London in the Premier League.

• Ramsey has scored six goals for club and country this term, already double what he managed in the whole of 2012/13.

• Thomas Vermaelen made his first appearance of the season following a back problem as a late substitute on Saturday, replacing debutant Özil.

• Arsenal have won their last nine away games in all competitions, a run that started with the 2-0 victory at FC Bayern München in last season's round of 16. Seven have come in the league, just one shy of their best set in 2001/02.

• Mikel Arteta is yet to play this season because of a thigh problem, while Abou Diaby has been sidelined since March with a knee injury. Lukas Podolski (hamstring) could be out until November and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has missed five games with a knee problem.
