Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Abou Diaby and Serge Gnabry will all play for the u21’s on Tuesday.

There is no word as to why Mathieu Debuchy will not feature, however the full-back gave an interview in France in which he talked about this season being a ‘black’ one for him due to the two serious injuries he picked up since arriving at the club in the summer.

Arsenal’s u21’s play Stoke in the Barclay’s u21 Premier League and the game will be played at the Emirates with tickets costing only £4 for adults and £2 for concessions and it offers fans a rare opportunity to see Abou Diaby playing actual football on a real pitch.

The lesser-spotted midfielder will be hoping that the game on Tuesday night will be a solid step on his road to recovery and a new contract with the Gunners.
