Arsenal will have midfielder Mathieu Flamini back from suspension for Tuesday night's Champions League clash against Marseille at the Emirates Stadium.

Forward Theo Walcott is also in contention after his return against Southampton following two months out with an abdominal problem.

German striker Lukas Podolski has resumed training after his hamstring injury, but remains short of match fitness. Yaya Sanogo (back), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) are all still sidelined.

Provisional Squad: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Flamini, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Walcott, Giroud, Fabianski, Arteta, Monreal, Wilshere, Rosicky, Gnabry, Vermaelen, Bendtner.
