Regarding other selection news, Wenger added, "Almunia is out – he would not have played anyway but he is a doubt for Saturday.

"Also, Kieran Gibbs will play tomorrow night, Clichy is completely rested. Aaron Ramsey is not in the squad too. At the moment he is growing in stature and a bit tired so we will rest him. Apart from that everybody is in."

Eduardo da Silva is also sidelined due to a groin injury.
