Good news for Arsenal fans as the Gunners have almost everyone available to face Barcelona on Tuesday night.
The huge and eagerly awaited game at the Emirates Stadium see Arsène Wenger’s side with quite a task on their hands, up against last season’s treble winners and arguably the most potent strikeforce in the history of the game. Lucky then, that there are no new injuries.

That means striker Danny Welbeck has responded well to his first start in 10 months and is available for selection against the Spanish champions.
Long-term absentees Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla remain out, while the game comes too soon for Brazilian defender Gabriel and Mikel Arteta.
That means a the team that beat Leicester City recently could start. No players are suspended for the first leg clash either, though bookings for Mesut Özil, Joel Campbell or Olivier Giroud on Tuesday would rule them out of the return game in a fortnight.
