Abou Diaby returns to the Arsenal side for today's Premier League clash with West Brom.

The French midfielder suffered an ankle injury during the win over Bolton earlier this month but is fit to face the newly-promoted Baggies.

Diaby is one of nine changes to the team that started the Carling Cup win at Tottenham in midweek.

Laurent Koscielny and Samir Nasri keep their places but Arsène Wenger has rotated his squad after a gruelling tie went to extra time.

Arsenal team: Almunia, Sagna, Koscielny, Squillaci, Clichy, Song, Diaby, Nasri, Eboue, Chamakh, Arshavin. Subs: Rosicky, Vela, Denilson, Wilshere, Djourou, Fabianski, Emmanuel-Thomas
