Manager Arsene Wenger described the injuries as "short-term" and hopes the key duo will be fit for Sunday's Carling Cup final against Birmingham.



Johan Djourou missed the FA Cup draw with Leyton Orient with a back problem but is now fully fit and will start at the Emirates Stadium. Abou Diaby is suspended and long-term absentees Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles) and Lukasz Fabianski (shoulder) remain sidelined.



Team (from): Szczesny, Eboue, Clichy, Song, Djourou, Arshavin, Wilshere, Walcott, Bendtner, Chamakh, Fabregas, Nasri, Almunia, Rosicky, Sagna, Denilson, Squillaci, Gibbs.
