No Song for Gunners at Nou Camp

05 April 2010 02:02
Arsenal will be without Alex Song (knee) for Tuesday night's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Captain Cesc Fabregas will miss the rest of the season after suffering a cracked bone in his leg, while defender William Gallas and Russian Andrey Arshavin (both calf) are also out after picking up injuries in the first game which ended 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.

England forward Theo Walcott is pressing to start after making an impact from the bench against Barca last Wednesday and impressing in the weekend win over Wolves, while there are concerns over the match fitness of veteran defender Sol Campbell.

Robin van Persie (ankle) is back in training, but is still a couple of weeks away from a return.

Arsenal (from): Almunia, Sagna, Vermaelen, Campbell, Clichy, Denilson, Diaby, Nasri, Rosicky, Walcott, Bendtner, Fabianski, Eduardo, Merida, Eastmond, Traore, Eboue, Silvestre.
