Abou Diaby is back in the Arsenal squad for the Premier League game with Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The French midfielder has been missing since the 2-1 defeat at Porto on February 17 because of knee ligament damage. However he was added to the 18 after coming through a test on Friday.

On the downside, Sol Campbell is out. The centre back picked up a groin problem at Stoke last Saturday and will be sidelined. He should be back for the second leg against Porto on Tuesday.

“Campbell is not fit but Diaby is in the squad,” said Wenger on Friday. “He had a first successful test today.

“I hope that Sol could be back for next week [against Porto].”
