Arsenal vs Fenerbahce takes place in the Champions League qualifiers on Wednesday night, with Arsenal looking to rally following their embarrassing season opening day loss at the Emirates Stadium at the weekend.

The match will kick off at 7.45 p.m. BST (2.45 p.m. ET) and can be watched online through free live stream via the link provided below.

The Gunners have come under fire already even though only one match has been played so far this season. Fans were angered by the manner of their 3-1 opening day loss to Aston Villa, and the Emirates was almost completely emptied out prior to the final whistle – showing the dissatisfaction among Arsenal fans at the result.

Already Arsene Wenger has come under fire, and the spotlight has been intensified on his position at the north London club after he again lost a number of his best players, and has failed to significantly strengthen his side over the summer.

Arsenal really need a good performance and a strong win here in their trip to Fenerbahce tonight, and anything but a win will surely stir further anger among fans.

For tonight's match the Gunners will be without midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the 20-year-old suffered a knee injury in the 3-1 defeat by Aston Villa on Saturday. Manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed the England international will be out for up to six weeks.

However, in better news defenders Bacary Sagna, Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal should all be fit for the play-off first leg in Turkey.

"We fought very hard last season to be in the top four of the Premier League and that game has a vital importance," said Wenger, according to BBC Sport. "It is a consequence of what we tried to achieve last season and therefore, on the back of our defeat against Aston Villa, it's important as well to bounce back straight away.

"To be part of the top level - that is the most important thing for us. All the rest are the consequences of it. When you are a football player, you want to play at the top level and that's what the Champions League is about."

Make no mistake this is a vital match for Arsenal's season – if they don't manage to overcome the Turkish side over two legs then they will not take part in the Champions League proper tournament. Whoever wins through this double-header will win through to Europe's top tournament, and an all-important financial windfall, as well as the chance to establish themselves as one of the top sides in Europe.
