Two In, Seven Out for Porto tie + Predicted XI

A massive seven players are out of Arsenal’s Champions League squad for tomorrow’s final game in Group G against FC Porto.

As the Gunners have already qualified – and with one eye on Saturday’s Premier League clash at Middlesbrough – full-backs Bacary Sagna (flu), Gael Clichy (hamstring), strikers Emmanuel Adebayor (rested), Robin van Persie (thigh) and Kolo Toure (calf) are also staying in London.

Captain Cesc Fabregas (knee) and Samir Nasri (ankle) will also be missing from the squad, while French duo William Gallas and Abou Diaby are welcomed back into the side.

Youngsters Aaron Ramsey, Kieran Gibbs, Gavin Hoyte, Mark Randall, Fran Merida, Jack Wilshere and Jay Simpson all make the travelling squad, which also includes midfielder Emmanuel Eboue – who was jeered off in Saturday’s home game against Wigan.
