Both Denilson and Walcott will be back for the game after missing the last few games through injury. The big bonus out of those two is Denilson. He was the man chosen to replace Song so it's good to have him back. Walcott is nice to have back, but in the game's he's played he's hardly been excellent.
The bad news is that goal scorer from the weekend Mérida will miss the 'second leg' against Bolton with an injury he picked up shortly after coming on. I suppose it's not a major blow as both Denilson and Theo are back, but to see any player out is disappointing.
The only other bit of news is that big Nic Bendtner should be back within 10 days, and that the game at Villa has been ear marked as his comeback.
Onto international watch now, and to the two Gooners playing out in Angola in the African Cup of Nations, or CAN.
Alex Song's Cameroon side came from behind last night to win 3-2 against Zambia. This means that a point against Tunisia will be enough to see them through to the next round of the competition after they lost their opening game.
There was mixed fortunes for Eboue, as the Ivory Coast qualified with a 3-1 over Ghana. Eboue was sent off after 56 minutes and now won't play again unless the Elephant's reach the semi-finals.
Back soon with a preview to the upcoming Bolton game, unless anything major happens between now and then!
