Arsenal announce 18-man squad for Bayern clash

Arsenal have named their squad for tomorrow's Champions League trip.

Only 18 make the trip to Germany, with Jack Wilshere and Lukas Podolski the latest to drop out with injuries.

Wojciech Szczesny is rested while Bacary Sagna also misses out at right-back.

Nacho Monreal is cup-tied, but Kieran Gibbs is fit again to start at left-back and Abou Diaby returns.

The full squad is as follows:

Fabianski, Mannone, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Coquelin, Ramsey, Diaby, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rosicky, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud, Gervinho, Arshavin.

Arsenal are attempting to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the home leg, against a Bayern team who are 20 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

From the 18 selected, how would you set up the starting XI?

Who should start in goal, Fabianski or Mannone?
