Arsenal v Sunderland - Tickets

Cesc Fabregas, Arsenal Team Captain

Arsenal v Sunderland

The Gunners are set to play without star forward Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott who has been ruled out of the game with a sprained ankle.

Team captain Cesc Fabregas hopes to be fit for Saturday, and at Arsenal's last 16 second leg tie at his boyhood club Barcelona on March 8th. Fabregas suffered a hamstring injury during last month's Premier League win over Stoke and has been on the bench since. He missed Arsenal's Carling Cup Final loss against Birmingham at Wembley last weekend.
Fabregas remarked, "We’ll take things day by day. I know when I can play. We have many games coming up so I couldn’t afford to stay on and lose three weeks rather than seven days. I am running, getting better and don’t sense any pain. We’ll see how the next few days go."

"Perhaps I’ll have a chance for Saturday."

Arsenal travels to Barcelona in next weeks Champions League play on March 8th.
