David Bentley, whose wonder goal lit up the Emirates back in October, will miss Sunday's home derby through suspension.

The midfielder hit a spectacular 45-yard volley in that unforgettable 4-4 draw but picked up a fifth booking of the campaign against Stoke City and has to sit it out on a one-match ban.

He will be joined on the sidelines by Ledley King (knee), Jamie O'Hara (hip), Jermain Defoe (foot) and Alan Hutton (foot).

Better news sees goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes in full training and back in the frame after a thigh injury while Robbie Keane will make his second 'debut' for the club after re-signing from Liverpool on Monday and Wilson Palacios and Pascal Chimbonda are in line for home debuts.

"Ledley's not fit, unfortunately," reported Harry at Friday's pre-Arsenal media briefing. "Jamie is still struggling, Alan Hutton is long-term and Jermain is now out but other than that we're okay."
