Birmingham v Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Cesc Fabregas, rested Robin van Persie, and Alex Song will be back for tomorrow’s match against Birmingham.

We get back Song, Fabregas – who was suspended – and Van Persie. They will be back in the squad. “We lose Diaby for a calf strain, [he will miss] three weeks approximately.

The squad will be approximately the squad that has gone to Wigan.

Birmingham boss Alex McLeish believes big teams don’t like to play his team away from home.

“Nobody likes coming here. People keep saying that – and long may it continue. We have earned that reputation and want to preserve it. We know Arsenal are capable of turning anybody over on their day, but if they feel a bit nervy, that could just give us a bit extra. We need to make sure that Arsenal are another big club who go home knowing they have been in a game.
