Extraordinary 9 Players Not Involved In City Tie

A jaw-dropping NINE players will be missing from Arsenal’s squad to face Manchester City at Eastlands tomorrow afternoon.

With the news that Emmanuel Adebayor has been rested, and William Gallas has been stripped of the captaincy, Arsene Wenger is left with very few options for a tough Premier League clash with Mark Hughes’ side.

Young Guns exclusively revealed that Reserves skipper Gavin Hoyte has been drafted into the starting line-up due to Gallas’ disappointing comments earlier in the week.

The 18-year-old is one of many teenagers to take their place in the Arsenal squad, with Henri Lansbury, Jack Wilshere, Jay Simpson and several others also involved.

Bacary Sagna – Ankle
Theo Walcott – Dislocated Shoulder
