Lukasz Fabianski has been passed fit to face Stoke City.

The Polish goalkeeper was rated as 50:50 for Arsenal’s final Premier League fixture but Fabianski has recovered from his knee injury and will start on Sunday. Vito Mannone, standing by for his first-team debut, will have to wait a little longer for his chance.

Arsène Wenger reported no new injuries at his pre-match press conference but Emmanuel Adebayor has not shaken off the groin problem which ruled him out of last week’s draw at Manchester United.

“Emmanuel Adebayor has a groin problem and he won't play,” confirmed Wenger.

“But Fabianski will play. He had a test this morning and he is available and will play.”
