Arsenal have ‘two out, two back’ for the Champions League tie with Dynamo Kyiv on Tuesday.

William Gallas is restored to the squad after missing the defeat at Manchester City on Saturday while Cesc Fabregas returns after suspension.

On the negative side, Abou Diaby (abdominal strain) and Samir Nasri (knee) are sidelined after picking up injuries in training.

“We have lost two but gained two,” said Wenger. “Fabregas is back from suspension and William Gallas is back too. But they are the only two. We have lost Samir Nasri and Abou Diaby for tomorrow. Diaby has an abdominal strain and Samir Nasri has an inflammation in his knee again.”

Jay Simpson and Fran Merida are likely to be added to the squad.

Arsenal’s current injury list reads as follows: Kolo Toure (calf), Theo Walcott (shoulder), Emmanuel Eboue (knee), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring), Bacary Sagna (ankle), Emmanuel Adebayor (ankle) Eduardo (ankle), Nasri (knee), Diaby (abdominal).
