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
