Mathieu Flamini is adamant that Arsenal are not looking to use their lengthy injury list as an excuse ahead of the Champions League trip to Anderlecht.

The Gunners will travel to Belgium on Wednesday for the Group D clash looking to build on their 4-1 win against Galatasaray at the Emirates Stadium in their second game on 1st October.

However boss Arsene Wenger will be without Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud, Mathieu Debuchy and David Ospina, while a suspension for regular number one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny means third-choice Emiliano Martinez will make his Champions League debut.

The vast injury list was thought to have played a part in Arsenal's inability to deafeat Hull City in Saturday's 2-2 Premier League home draw, but Flamini is refusing to use the lack of numbers as an excuse.

The 30-year-old French midfielder told the Guardian: "We're having injuries but we don't want to hide behind any excuses.

"We're facing the truth – we didn't win on Saturday and we'll try to find a solution for the next games."

Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta and Lukas Podolski are all in training on Tuesday and could feature at some point in the game for Arsenal.
