LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Wojciech Szczesny is not in the squad at all for Arsenal for today’s Barclays Premier League clash with West Bromwich at The Hawthorns.
Szczesny, who had a late drop in form sees his place continue to be occupied by Lukasz Fabianski with Vito Mannone sitting on the bench in the unchanged Gunners side.
Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Theo Walcott (groin) continue to be out because of injuries, but full-backs Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal have passed late fitness tests and start.
Meanwhile, Youssouf Mulumbu, who picked up a red card in the 3-1 defeat to West Ham last week will be unavailable for the home side, which is also without the injured George Thorne and Zoltan Gera.
