Tom Huddlestone is the only injured absentee from the squad preparing to face Udinese in the UEFA Cup on Thursday night.

The midfielder misses the trip to Italy for our first match in the group stages with a slight knee injury. "Tom is injured and it wasn't possible for him to come," confirmed Head Coach Juande Ramos at the Stadio Friuli. "He needs to rest."

Roman Pavlyuchenko and Vedran Corluka are ineligible for the UEFA Cup and have stayed in London.
