Team News: Arsenal v. AZ Alkmaar

Arsenal host Dutch champions, AZ Alkmaar, tonight. The Gunners can wrap up qualification with a victory.

There are three changes to the starting lineup from the North London Derby. Bendtner hobbled off the field on Saturday, and he has suffered a 'serious' injury according to Arsene Wenger. Surgery could be required for Nik. Samir Nasri comes in to replace the big Dane. This is Nasri's first start in Europe this season. The other two changes are at the fullback positions. Clichy has a stress fracture in his back, so he will be out for one to two months. The more than capable Kieran Gibbs will get an extended run in the team. Also for today's math, Sagna is rested, with Eboue taking his place.

Starting XI: Almunia, Eboue, Gallas, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Song, Diaby, Fabregas, Arshavin, Nasri, van Persie

Bench: Mannone, Sagna, Senderos, Rosicky, Eduardo, Ramsey, Sylvester

The game will be on Sky Sports 2 in England, and Setanta in the States. Enjoy the match everyone.

there isn't a live broadcast available here in the states... glad to see we're doing well, should we be looking to take a couple of guys off to rest them for the weekend?

Song is beginning to add vision to his other attributes. He is becoming what we thought Diaby would be years back.
