Arsenal vs FC Twente CL Qualifying 08-09: Cesc Fabregas Expected to be Back in Action

Arsenal will take on Dutch club FC Twente tomorrow in the second leg of Champions league third round qualifying match. Arsenal won the first leg match at Netherlands 2-0 and they are clearly favorite for tomorrow’s home match as well. However, Arsenal’s priority in the match must be something more than just ensuring a place in the Champions League (CL) final round.

Arsenal has recently suffered a 1-0 loss at Fulham and now the Gunners are gearing up to put on an excellent performance against FC Twente in what would be a strong come back from their Fulham setback. Even manager Arsenal Wenger also sees it a good chance to make a strong come back.

There is good news for Arsenal fans as their star midfielder Cesc Fabregas is expected to come back in action after recovering from hamstring injury that forced him out for the first two premier league games of the season. His arrival must bolster the Gunners midfielder which looked weak against Fulham. However, Arsenal is going to miss a number of key players including the new signing defender Mikael Silvestre who has suffered a thigh muscle strain. Philippe Senderos is in his way to AC Milan to undergo a medical test looking to join the club on a loan deal. Long term absentees Abou Diaby, Amaury Bischoff, Tomas Rosicky and striker Eduardo will remain sidelined.
