Robin Van Persie Included In Arsenal's Champions League Squad To Face Barcelona

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has sprung a surprise by naming vice-captain Robin van Persie in his squad to face Barcelona on Tuesday night.

Wenger had initially feared that his star striker would be out for up to four weeks after suffering knee ligament damage in the Gunners’ disappointing League Cup final defeat to Birmingham.

The story is too old to be commented.

Awesome, I just hope that he's over 85% fit. I Don't want to see him out for the rest of the season due to injury.
Arsenal only missing Song and Walcott from the first leg.
