Midfielder Abou Diaby is also absent after being ruled out for nine months with anterior cruciate ligament damage in his left knee.

Left-back Kieran Gibbs will be assessed after being laid low by a virus, but striker Lukas Podolski (ankle) and right-back Bacary Sagna (knee) should be available again, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and captain Thomas Vermaelen are eyeing recalls.
