Alex Hleb and Gilberto have shaken off minor injuries and can take their places in the Arsenal squad for the Champions League Quarter-Final first leg against Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.

The Belarus midfielder got a kick at Bolton on Saturday and the Brazilian midfielder missed that game with a groin injury. However the pair will be available in midweek. The only players unavailable to Arsène Wenger are Bacary Sagna (ankle), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) and Eduardo (broken leg).

"Alex Hleb had a bad kick at the weekend but it looks like he will be alright," said the manager at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday afternoon. "Gilberto is back in the squad. He had a groin problem before the weekend.

"Bacary Sagna and Tomas Rosicky are both not back. But we have not lost any players from the last game."
