Abou Diaby returns to the Arsenal squad for tomorrow night’s crucial Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund. The French international has yet to play for the Gunners this season having undergone surgery on his troublesome ankle during the summer.
Tomas Rosicky is the only injury worry for Arsene Wenger having pulled up in training with ‘a small thigh strain’.
Arsene Wenger also confirmed that Robin van Persie would start against the Germans tomorrow night as there are no worries over his fitness.
Arsenal would qualify for the knock-out stages with a win and should Marseille fail to beat Greek side Olympiacos the Gunners would top the group.
“Every player and member of staff is conscious that this is a big night for us. We have the desire to win the game”, said Wenger at his pre-game press conference.
