Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will have to rely on a patched-up side as he looks to put a taxing few days behind him by securing safe passage into the Champions League group stage.

The Gunners take a 1-0 advantage to Udinese for the second leg of their play-off but will have to defend it without a number of key players.

Manchester City-bound Samir Nasri is absent while Jack Wilshere, Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs are injured.

Defeat would cost Arsenal about £20m.

Despite their domestic suspensions, Emmanuel Frimpong, Alex Song and Gervinho will all be available, as will Robin van Persie who missed the first leg.

However, with Nicklas Bendtner and Abou Diaby also out, such is the apparent lack of strength in depth currently available to Wenger that Carl Jenkinson – a £1m summer signing from Charlton, where he had played only a handful of games – could start at left-back.

Wenger will at least be able to watch from the touchline unlike in the first leg.

Theo Walcott’s goal in the first leg last Tuesday ensures Arsenal go into the match with a slender lead, but their vulnerability this season has already been underlined by a 2-0 loss to Liverpool at the weekend, while Udinese themselves caused plenty of problems last week in London.

Antonio di Natale, in particular, was a source of constant worry for the Gunners backline and they will again have to be wary of a striker who has top-scored in Serie A for the past two seasons.

Provisional squad: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Djourou, Sagna, Traore, Arshavin, Frimpong, Ramsey, Song, Rosicky, Walcott, Van Persie, Fabianski, Chamakh, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Miquel.
