Centre-back Laurent Koscielny has been given the all-clear after a head injury to play for Arsenal in tomorrow night's Champions League clash against Partizan Belgrade at Emirates Stadium.

However, fellow defender Johan Djourou (thigh) will be rested and Emmanuel Eboue comes back into the squad after missing the win over Fulham to protect his recent knee problem.

Captain Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) remains out, along with Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles), Abou Diaby (ankle) and goalkeeper Manuel Almunia (elbow).

Team (from): Fabianski, Clichy, Squillaci, Koscielny, Sagna, Arshavin, Song, Nasri, Wilshere, Rosicky, Chamakh, Szczesny, Walcott, Bendtner, Denilson, Gibbs, van Persie, Eboue.
