Arshavin out for Arsenal

Arsenal will be without midfielder Andrey Arshavin (groin) for the trip to Manchester City, but captain Cesc Fabregas is expected to return from a hamstring problem.

Winger Tomas Rosicky played for the Czech Republic in midweek, but may still be short of full match fitness.

Theo Walcott (back) has returned to training, while defender Johan Djourou (knee), winger Samir Nasri (broken leg) and reserve goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski (knee) are all out.

Provisional Squad: Almunia, Clichy, Gallas, Vermaelen, Sagna, Song, Fabregas, Denilson, van Persie, Eduardo, Bendtner, Mannone, Diaby, Senderos, Eboue, Ramsey, Silvestre, Wilshere.
