Published : 23 May 2009 11:15:00
Rookie goalkeeper Vito Mannone could be handed an unexpected Arsenal debut against Stoke in the final Premier League game of the season on Sunday. Regular number one Manuel Almunia has been sidelined for a couple of weeks with an ankle injury and Polish international Lukasz Fabianski (knee) is rated only 50/50. Midfielder Samir Nasri will also miss the game at Emirates Stadium with a knee injury. Long-term absentee Tomas Rosicky is back in training but will not play again this season while full-back Gael Clichy (back), William Gallas (knee) and striker Eduardo (ankle) remain sidelined.
