Bolton v Arsenal preview
Arsenal will be without midfielder Abou Diaby (calf), while winger
Tomas Rosicky is also doubtful with illness. Centre-back Thomas
Vermaelen (Achilles) continues his rehabilitation. Striker Daniel
Sturridge returns to the Bolton squad. The on-loan Chelsea player
was cup-tied for last weekend’s 5-0 defeat by Stoke in the FA Cup
semi-final but is expected to go straight back into the starting
line-up. Mark Davies is also in contention for a starting spot
after recovering from an ankle injury but Sam Ricketts (Achilles),
Sean Davis and Stuart Holden (knee) are long-term absentees. Bolton
