With seven first-team players out with injuries, 17-year-old midfield starlet Aaron Ramsey is set to be given another chance in the Champions League competition as Arsenal take on Dynamo Kyiv in their Group G encounter tomorrow night.
The Welshman, who has already played in both home and away games to Fenerbahce, looks likely to stake a place on the right hand side where the Gunners appear to be lacking in strength with Samir Nasri, Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky all out through injury.
A youthful substitutes bench will also become apparent. Henri Lansbury (18), Jay Simpson (19), Jack Wilshere (16), Kieran Gibbs (19) and Gavin Hoyte (18) all trained at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground earlier this afternoon.
William Gallas comes back into the side after receiving a repreival from Arsene Wenger. The former skipper disgraced himself with critical comments aimed at the Gunners’ policies and youngsters but after Cesc Fabregas was named permanent captain today, Gallas can have that hinderance off his back.
Predicted Starting XI
Djourou – Gallas – Silvestre – Clichy
Ramsey – Fabregas (c) – Song – Denilson
Bendtner – van Persie
Subs: Fabianski, Vela, Wilshere, Gibbs, Hoyte, Merida, Simpson.
