Good news for Arsenal as live wire Stephen Ireland was injured in a training match and is set to miss today's match, forcing Mark Hughes to bring back Robinho. Lets hope the Brazilian striker keeps his scoreless streak intact.
Cesc returns and his teaming up with Arshavin should provide many highlight moments. Adebayor comes back and so does Walcott. With Arshavin and Walcott, Arsenal should be able to pull the game wide on either side to allow Adebayor or Bendtner to capitalize on the crosses.
This is the homestretch and putting as much daylight between Villa and them is important. A good result puts them in the right frame to take on Villareal.
A heartwarming stat: Man City's away form has been very poor with just one away win and a -10 goal differential.
