Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will pass a fitness test this morning and will board the plane to face Barcelona tomorrow night according to his manager Arsene Wenger.

The World Cup winner has been out with a hamstring injury since the 1-0 victory over Stoke City 13 days ago.

But Wenger expects him to play against the La Liga champions if he comes through a fitness test today.

The Frenchman also confirmed Jack Wilshere is available after a ankle niggle but Alex Song is definitely out with a knee injury.

“Fabregas will have a final test today,” said Wenger at his Monday morning briefing.

“It is 90% he will travel and be fit. It is vital for us because he is important in the transition between attacking and defending. He is also the leader of the team so we want him there.

“Alex Song is completely out. He had a test on Sunday morning and it was negative. Wilshere will be fit.

“Everybody else who played on Saturday should be available.”
