Arsenal have no fresh injury problems and manager Arsene Wenger is again expected to rotate his starting XI.

Kieran Gibbs, Emmanuel Eboue, Denilson, Andrey Arshavin, Nicklas Bendtner and Marouane Chamakh are all likely to feature after being substitutes against Wigan, while there could yet be a debut for young Spanish centre-back Ignasi Miquel.

Midfielder Tomas Rosicky (virus), Abou Diaby (calf) and Sebastien Squillaci (hamstring) may all return for Sunday's FA Cup fourth round tie against Huddersfield, but goalkeepers Lukasz Fabianski (shoulder) and Manuel Almunia (ankle) remain out.

Centre-back Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles) is still some six weeks away from a possible return.

Ipswich will be without winger Lee Martin.

Martin returned to the starting line-up as Town beat Doncaster 3-2 at the weekend after he was recalled from his loan spell at Charlton early by new manager Paul Jewell.

But the former Manchester United midfielder is cup-tied having played in the competition for the Addicks earlier this season.

His place could go to Jason Scotland, Mark Kennedy or Luciano Civelli as Jewell looks to build on a first-leg win a fortnight ago.

Goalkeeper Brian Murphy is set to be out for at least three months with an ankle injury so Marton Fulop will continue.

Winger Shane O'Connor remains sidelined with a dislocated shoulder but midfielder Luke Hyam returned to the bench at the weekend after a lengthy spell out with a hamstring problem.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Gibbs, Miquel, Koscielny, Eboue, Arshavin, Denilson, Song, Wilshere, Chamakh, Bendtner, Shea, Sagna, Clichy, Walcott, Nasri, Van Persie, Fabregas, Djourou.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
