Jens Lehmann's omission is the only change in Arsène Wenger's squad for the Champions League third qualifying round second leg tie with Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday.
The German keeper has suffered a slight knee problem. Apart from that Arsène Wenger will name the same 16 which picked up a point against Aston Villa on Saturday. However two more places are available for Champions League games so Alex Song and Jeremie Aliadiere have been drafted in.
The retention of the status quo means Ashley Cole is still absent in the wake of his desire to leave Arsenal. Otherwise the injury list reads as follows: Philippe Senderos (shoulder), Gael Clichy (foot), Abou Diaby (ankle), Tomas Rosicky (groin), Jose Antonio Reyes (groin) and Lauren (knee)
"Lehmann has a slight knee problem so Manuel Almunia will play," said Wenger at Tuesday's pre-match press conference
"Tomas Rosicky is not in the squad but Freddie Ljungberg is in. In fact, we have exactly the same squad as against Aston Villa plus Song and Aliadiere."
