Wenger's starting 11: Vermaelen & Sagna out - Djourou & Coquelin start

Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna are omitted from the Arsenal team to face Manchester United this afternoon through injury and sickness respectively.

Vermaelen has failed to recover from a thigh injury and Sagna has been battling illness which has forced him to stay in London.

So in their place Johan Djourou starts alongside Laurent Koscielny in the heart of the Arsenal defence with Armand Traore recalled to left back.

Wenger is forced to hand a first team debut to Francis Coquelin in place of the suspended Alex Song and Emmanuel Frimpong.
