Key quartet back for Gunners

Skipper Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song, Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby all

return after missing the 2-2 draw at West Brom in the Gunners’ last

outing almost a fortnight ago. Wenger is also optimistic that van

Persie, Nicklas Bendtner and Aaron Ramsey will shake off knocks

picked up on international duty, but a final decision on the trio

will be made after training on Friday. “[Fabregas, Song, Walcott

and Diaby] will all be available,” Wenger told ArsenalTV Online. “I

have not decided if they will start the game yet but they will all

be available. “Van Persie has a good chance too. He has a final

assessment tomorrow but we believe he will be fit. It is a bruised

knee. Nicklas Bendtner is in the same situation. He will have a

test tomorrow on his ankle and we’ll see. “In fact, we have a few

players with tests tomorrow – Ramsey with his groin, Bendtner with

his ankle, Van Persie with his knee. I will make a decision after

training in the morning.” Denilson is the only certain absentee for

Rovers’ visit after being ruled out with a toe injury.
