Arsenal take on Dinamo Kiev in a few hours time with our new captain Cesc Fabregas looking for his first win wearing the armband to ensure that the Gunners secure their place in the knock out stages of the Champions League.
I’ll keep this short as there’s not a lot else to say apart from the fact that our injury list keeps getting longer. It now reads Abou Diaby (abdominal strain), Samir Nasri (knee), Arsenal’s Kolo Toure (calf), Theo Walcott (shoulder), Emmanuel Eboue (knee), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring), Bacary Sagna (ankle), Emmanuel Adebayor (ankle) and Eduardo (ankle).
It appears as though Jay Simpson and Fran Merida might find themselves on the bench this evening, but otherwise it’s anyone’s guess as to how Arsene Wenger will set up the team.
As usual, share your thoughts on our starting 11 here, using our comments section.
For the record, here’s who I’d like to see on the pitch at kick-off tonight:
Hoyte Djourou Silvestre Clichy
Wilshere Denilson Fabregas Vela
Bendtner Van Persie
