Francesc Fabregas will be fit to face Villarreal in the Champions League Semi-Final first leg on Wednesday night.

The 18-year-old midfielder has missed the last two games with a foot injury picked up at Manchester United but he will be back to face his Spanish compatriots at Highbury. Sol Campbell will miss the game with a broken nose but Arsène Wenger had better news about another England defender when he spoke at Tuesday's pre-match press conference.

"Fabregas trained and will be alright for Wednesday," said the manager. "But Sol Campbell is out.

"Ashley Cole will not be involved as it was only his second training session with the team today. He will play in the Reserves on Wednesday so we will see how that goes. He is making progress."

18/1 - Henry to score first and Arsenal to win 2-0 - plus win a trip to Villarreal
