Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his side are missing just four players through injury for their game against Barcelona.

The Gunners host the Catalan giants on Tuesday night in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash.

Arsenal drew 0-0 with Championship side Hull at the weekend and they now face their toughest test of the season in the La Liga champions.

Wenger rested several first-team players at the weekend as he made nine changes for the FA Cup game.

And he will have a strong squad to choose from for the visit of Barcelona.

“We have Wilshere, Cazorla and Gabriel out,” Wenger said. “Arteta as well. Everybody else is available.”

While Gabriel is ruled out of the game against Barcelona, the Brazilian defender has returned to training.

Arsenal are hopeful that he will be back in time for the trip to Manchester United next weekend.
