Arsenal will want to wrap up qualification to the last 16 with a victory over Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday. The Gunners will look to emulate the performance at the Emirates when these two teams met two weeks ago, and if they do that, they will as good as seal their place in the knockouts.

Arsene Wenger's side will go through from Group A if they win and PSG at least pick up a draw in their match against FC Basel. If one of the two table-topping teams lose, though, neither will be able to make it as yet.

However, Arsenal will not be too worried over the PSG result, because they know if they do pick up another three points against Ludogorets, they will be on the brink of qualification, at worst.

The Gunners were imperious in their last Champions League game, hitting the Bulgarian side for six, and Wenger will hope for another worry-free encounter on Tuesday. Interestingly, this Ludogorets match will be Arsenal's first of November, a month where they have, in the recent past, tripped up.

Wenger, though, is confident his side have the mental strength to overcome a November blip and continue their strong form this season.

"We have some very important games in front of us," Wenger said. "But we need to continue to do what we've done until now by just focusing on the next game. We have to try to win (against Ludogorets) and then we have Tottenham at home on Sunday.

"The best way to prepare for that is for us to continue our strong run. It's important to keep a good balance between vigilance and confidence.

"We've had in difficult Novembers in previous seasons, but we've also had positive ones in our history too. The most important thing is to not live with the past, we have to live with the team we have at the moment."

Keeping that Spurs game in mind, Wenger is likely to rotate his team. Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal have not travelled with the Arsenal squad, while Olivier Giroud, after his brilliantly-effective performance against Sunderland on Saturday, could start. Aaron Ramsey will be another player hoping to get a few more minutes under his belt after just returning from injury.

Ludogorets will know had a chance here or a shot there gone in, particularly in the first half of the 6-0 defeat, the outcome might have been different. But, the manager Georgi Dermendzhiev is going to take a more safety-first approach against the Premier League side for this fixture.

"They are in fantastic shape and if they keep the same level, they will become champions of England," Dermendzhiev said. "We have analysed the first game in London and have made the necessary conclusions. There will be some different approach and we will be more cautious."
