Arsène Wenger will ring the changes for the final game of the season at Portsmouth on Sunday.

Emmanuel Adebayor (groin) is struggling while Thierry Henry (groin/stomach), Robin van Persie (foot) and Theo Walcott (shoulder) have been absent for some time. It means the Arsenal manager may pair Julio Baptista and the returning Freddie Ljungberg up front. Elsewhere Gilberto and Jens Lehmann will be rested.

"Rosicky is out, Aliadiere is out and Flamini is out," said Wenger. "Adebayor is a doubt with a groin problem but Ljungberg is available.

"I will rest Gilberto because of some niggles and I will rest Jens Lehmann because I want to play Almunia in the last game.  Apart from that everybody is available."

When asked about his front pairing he replied: "Baptista should play and maybe with Ljungberg."
