Arsenal will recall their big-hitters for Tuesday night's Champions League first knock-out round tie against holders Barcelona.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger rested a number of his key men for the FA Cup fifth-round draw with Hull on Saturday with the first-leg against the Catalan outfit in mind.

But, while the likes of Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Petr Cech will return to the squad, Jack Wilshere (leg), Gabriel (hamstring), Santi Cazorla (knee) and Tomas Rosicky (thigh) are all still missing.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Monreal, Gibbs, Koscielny, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Bellerin, Chambers, Ramsey, Elneny, Coquelin, Flamini, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Sanchez, Campbell, Walcott, Welbeck, Giroud.
