Pleguezuelo trains with first-team- Arsenal v Barcelona possible line ups

La Masia product Julio Pleguezuelo trained with the Arsenal first-team squad this morning as Arsene Wenger’s side held their final training session prior to tomorrow night’s Champions League game at home to Barcelona. 
Serge Gnabry also continued to train with the squad, but Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Carl Jenkinson are all still out. 

Gabriel and Mikel Arteta trained separately but aren’t fit enough to feature tomorrow.

As far as Barcelona are concerned, Arda Turan is suspended, Rafinha is injured and Marc Bartra, Douglas and Sandro have been left in Spain. Former Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen is likely to be on the bench for Luis Enrique’s side. 

Possible teams

Arsenal: Cech; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Ramsey; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez; Giroud. 

Subs: Ospina, Chambers, Gibbs, Flamini, Campbell, Welbeck, Walcott. 

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Alba; Iniesta, Busquets, Rakitic; Messi, Suarez, Neymar. 

Subs: Bravo, Mathieu, Vermaelen, Adriano, Roberto, Vidal, Munir. 



  1. A little disappointed Pleguezuelo wasn’t included in then squad on Saturday. If Gabriel isn’t fit, and the rumoured date is true, then maybe he will be involved in the replay.
