    Arsenal team UPDATE for FA Cup

    It seems Fergie's wishes for United to bounce back will be generously answered this weekend against a more or less weakened Arsenal team ravaged with injuries to some of their key players.

    According to latest report released on Arsenal.com website:

    "The two Ivorians are back from the Africa Cup of Nations and will be drafted into the squad for Old Trafford. However Gael Clichy (hamstring) and Bacary Sagna (personal reasons) are highly likely to miss out while Philippe Senderos (thigh/knee) can be considered doubtful."

    "If all three are missing then the list of Arsenal absentees will have reached double figures."

    "Nobody is coming back from Monday night," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Thursday afternoon."

    "For the record the full injury list is: Johan Djourou (groin), Robin van Persie (thigh), Abou Diaby (calf), Manuel Almunia (sick), Denilson (hamstring), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring), Walcott (thigh), Clichy (hamstring), Sagna (personal reasons) and Senderos (knee/thigh)."

    All this begs the question of which type of side the Frenchman will field at Old Trafford, especially as Arsenal entertain AC Milan at Emirates next Wednesday.

    "It will be as strong as possible so we have a good chance to win the game without putting the rest of the season into jeopardy by risking injuries," he said.
