Arsenal set to recall big names for Barcelona clash

Big names return

Arsenal will recall their key first team players for Tuesday night’s Champions League first leg match against Barcelona at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners rested the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Petr Cech and Mesut Ozil for the FA Cup fifth-round stalemate with Hull on Saturday.

But they will all return to the starting XI for the visit of Luis Enrique’s men, with shot stopper Cech yet to concede a goal against Lionel Messi whenever he has faced the Argentine.

Jack Wilshere (leg), Gabriel (hamstring), Santi Cazorla (knee) and Tomas Rosicky (thigh) are all still unavailable.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Monreal, Gibbs, Koscielny, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Bellerin, Chambers, Ramsey, Elneny, Coquelin, Flamini, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Sanchez, Campbell, Walcott, Welbeck, Giroud.
