Perhaps the only good thing to come out of Arsenal's 0-0 draw with Hull City at the weekend, which creates all sorts of fixture congestion, is the fact that nobody got hurt. Going into the Barca match, the Boss' update was a simple one:
We are still without Wilshere, Cazorla and Gabriel. Everyone else is available.
Yep, that's it, in its entirety. Don't believe me? Check it. Full health is a good thing; full health against a side like Barcelona, with its three headed attack of Messi, Suarez, and Neymar, is a bare minimum if Arsenal want to have a chance of coming out of this tie with a good result.
I like to think that Arsenal at full strength can at the very least give Barca a run for their money; it may be one of those "if everything goes right" scenarios, but Arsenal have what it takes to win this tie. And now they have the players available to prove me right.
