Arsenal v Man City preview: Premier League defending champions visit the Emirates

Olivier Giroud: Cut his leg in the FA Cup draw with Swansea City

The Frenchman suffered a cut knee in last weekend's FA Cup draw at Swansea City but otherwise Arsenal have no other fresh injury problems.

Andre Santos and Abou Diaby could be in contention after building their fitness with a midweek Under 21s outing but goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is still at least a fortnight away from returning to training.

City travel to Arsenal without Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and former Gunner Samir Nasri this weekend.

Striker Aguero (hamstring) remains on the sidelines while midfielder Toure is at the African Cup of Nations - along with brother Kolo and back-up striker Abdul Razak - and forward Nasri completes a three-game suspension.

Left-back Aleksandar Kolarov (knee) is back in contention for the Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium but right-back Maicon (knee) is still out while Micah Richards and Jack Rodwell are long-term casualties.
