Johan Djourou will miss Arsenal’s trip to Leyton Orient on Sunday.
The centre half hurt his back in Wednesday’s stunning comeback over Barcelona and is sidelined for the FA Cup Fifth Round tie at Brisbane Road.
Theo Walcott is expected to recover from a mild hamstring problem while everyone else can be classed as suffering from only “bumps and bruises”. Bacary Sagna is available after suspension but Abou Diaby is still banned.
Arsenal are in the middle of four games in four competitions over 11 days so, as expected, Wenger will make changes. Djourou is the only enforced absentee but Marouane Chamakh will be added to the squad after missing out against Barcelona.
Not that we can do anything about it, but I know a lot of us fantasy managers are following along hoping our Arsenal players will line up against Stoke on Wednesday.
