Philippe Senderos is back for the FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Newcastle at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The Swiss defender missed the defeat against Tottenham on Tuesday after receiving a nasty bash on the nose in the previous game at Fulham.

Gael Clichy is available again after a groin problem kept him sidelined at White Hart Lane however Denilson suffered a hamstring injury in the same game and will miss most of the next month. Johan Djourou (groin) and Robin van Persie (thigh) are still absent.
Speaking to Arsenal TV Online on Thursday afternoon, Wenger revealed he would change his side for the Club's second cup tie in the space of five days. And he will have his experienced midweek substitutes at his disposal should he need them.
"I will rotate yes," said the manager. "Some players will go out and some players who were rested will come in.
"From Tuesday night I don't think we'll lose anybody apart from Denilson, who will be out for three or four weeks. He has a hamstring.
"Gael Clichy should be available again after a groin problem and, of course, the players who were on the bench should be available too.
"Senderos is available again but not Djourou and Van Persie."

Arsenal TV Online subscribers will be able to see the full video interview on Friday morning. In it, Wenger discusses:

  • the defeat to Spurs
  • the Carling Cup as a whole
  • the Adebayor/Bendtner incident
  • players going on loan
  • his attitude to the FA Cup now
  • a Wembley final
  • Kevin Keegan's return
  • scoring from crosses
