Denilson ruled out of Barnet match due to injury

Brazilian midfielder Denilson hasn’t been included in Arsenal’s 22-man squad to face Barnet tomorrow after suffering a reoccurence of the groin injury which dogged him towards the end of last season.

The 22-year-old, whose 2009/10 campaign was blighted with injuries, has been training separately from the rest of the squad ahead of Saturday’s pre-season fixture.

Tomorrow’s match against League 2 side Barnet could see new signings Marouane Chamakh and Laurent Koscielny make their respective debuts, while Eduardo is also included after Arsene Wenger rebuffed transfer speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal.

Goalkeepers: Almunia, Fabianski

Defenders: Djourou, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Nordtveit, Miquel, Gibbs, Traore

Midfielders: Barazite, Eastmond, Frimpong, Emmanuel-Thomas, Henderson, Lansbury, Rosicky, Wilshere, Nasri

Forwards: Chamakh, Eduardo, Walcott, Arshavin
