Midfield duo James McCarthy and Jordi Gomez have both been given the all-clear to take on the Lions after picking up knocks in Sunday's 1-1 draw at QPR.

Martinez told the Evening Post: "Everyone is fit and raring to go as you can well imagine.

"Jordi has a couple of scratches on his head from the incident that saw Bobby Zamora sent off at QPR.

"He also had a really nasty challenge on his ankle in the second half, which fortunately didn't do too much damage.

"I don't expect him to be out for any length of time - and that is what tends to happen in Wembley week.

"Any bump or bruise that would ordinarily have caused a problem mysteriously disappears for some reason."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
