Roy’s offal preview video indicates that Simon Davies has been ruled out of the game against Arsenal tomorrow. All that speculation about him coming in for Clint Dempsey that I rattled on about earlier now seems something of a waste.
This BBC report says that AJ will miss out because of his shoulder injury. Nothing confirmed on that one though. Erik Nevland, who missed the midweek trip to Manchester through injury, is expected to be unavailable again so this could allow Kamara to partner Zamora and perhaps even hand Eddie Johnson or David Elm a spot on the bench.
Arsenal’s team news is interesting. Andrei Arshavin and Theo Walcott are available for selection after injury but Manuel Almunia is still out with a chest infection. Vito Mannone should deputise for the Spaniard in goal.
