Arsenal v Coventry preview

Denmark forward Nicklas Bendtner will be back in Arsenal's squad for the FA Cup fourth-round tie against Coventry following an ankle injury.

Midfielders Mikel Arteta (calf) and Aaron Ramsey (thigh) are still out as is Tomas Rosicky, who has been training in a protective mask since suffering a broken nose.

Yaya Sanogo (back) continues his rehabilitation. Abou Diaby and Theo Walcott are long-term absentees with their respective knee injuries.

Leon Clarke will lead the line for Coventry as they travel to the capital.

The wantaway striker remains at the club with manager Steven Pressley claiming there have been no bids for the 28-year-old, who will be looking to put himself further in the shop window in front of the TV cameras on Friday night.

Forward Callum Wilson remains sidelined with a dislocated shoulder but Pressley otherwise expects to have a fully-fit squad.

The Sky Blues have lost one of their last 12 games on the road and will be looking to put on a better showing at the Emirates than they did in the Capital One Cup last season, when the Gunners romped to a 6-1 success.
