Team News: SC Columbia v. Arsenal

Considering the somber news of Nasri's injury earlier this afternoon, tonight's match against amateur Austrian side Columbia is hardly newsworthy. Regardless, this game is an important step in regaining fitness for the players. Most of the squad that played against Barnet has been left in North London to play against Lincoln City last night, where the kids won 3-2 over their League 2 opponents. This means we will see much more of the first team squad in tonight's game.

Starting Lineup: Almunia, Eboue, Djourou, Vermaelen, Silvestre, Wilshere, Denilson, Ramsey, Diaby, Arshavin, Bendtner

Bench: Mannone, Toure, Gallas, Sagna, Senderos, Song, Traore, van Persie, Szczesny

Obviously with Samir's absence for the next three months, there will be an added pressure to have Rosicky fit by the start of the season. This might have detrimental effects on the Czech Republic player. He has not be included in the team tonight. Jack Wilshere is another player being mentioned to help fill the role of Nasri, and he has been handed a start by Wenger. For several of these players, this is their first match action since early June, so let's all pray they come through unscathed.

The game is being shown live from the Columbiaplatz in Austria on Arsenal TV Online right now.

Saying that, he does think that Diaby is a great player.

Almunia needs to change his hairstyle, it's clearly not helping.
