Arsenal will again be without first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny because of an ankle problem for Sunday's Barclays Premier League trip to Manchester City.

Jack Wilshere (ankle) and Emmanuel Frimpong (knee) both returned to training this week, but are still some way from first-team contention.

Czech winger Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) and French defender Bacary Sagna (broken leg) are expected to feature within the next fortnight.

Provisional squad: Mannone, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Cazorla, Diaby, Arteta, Podolski, Gervinho, Giroud, Martinez, Ramsey, Walcott, Koscielny, Santos, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coquelin.
