Nicklas Bendtner will lead the Arsenal attack against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League tonight.

From the side that beat West Ham on Saturday Marouane Chamakh drops to the bench as do Bacary Sagna and Laurent Koscielny.

Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) has not travelled as a precaution and Andrey Arshavin (virus), Alex Song (calf) and Denilson (groin) are also missing.

Craig Eastmond starts in midfield alongside Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott is given a place on the right.

Johan Djourou partners Sebastien Squillaci at centre half and Tomas Rosicky captains the side.

Team in full: Fabianski, Eboue, Clichy, Djourou, Squillaci, Wilshere, Eastmond, Nasri, Rosicky, Walcott, Bendtner

Subs: Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Vela, Chamakh, Lansbury, Emmanuel-Thomas
