Olivier Giroud will miss Arsenal's Capital One Cup quarter-final against Bradford but Arsene Wenger has vowed to field a strong side.
The French striker took a knock to his back in the 2-0 win over West Brom at the weekend and Wenger has confirmed the player is the only fresh injury worry and will miss the trip to Valley Parade.
Elsewhere, Bacary Sagna will miss out once again, while Theo Walcott, who scored a hat-trick against Reading in the previous round is not fit enough to play.
There is some good news regarding Lukas Podolski who is back training and could figure against the Bantams.
"The only new player who is not available is Olivier Giroud," Wenger revealed. "He got a kick on his back on Saturday. He has not recovered and he will be out.
"We want to take our chance and go through to the semi-final. We'll use an experienced side because we have time to recover before Monday's match at Reading. We can use the players we want to use."
