Fabregas out of Arsenal-Celtic clash

Arsenal will have to do without their talismanic captain Cesc Fabregas in tonight's Champions League second-leg tie with Celtic at the Emirates. The Spain midfielder is suffering from a hamstring injury.

Youngsters Abou Diaby and Aaron Ramsey look set to start in midfiled as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger looks to rotate his sqaud safe in the knowledge that his side hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg in Parkhead last week.

Celtic meanwhile are without Cameroon midfielder Landry N'Guemo will miss the Champions League play-off clash through suspension. Tony Mowbray's side will need to pull off a shock win tonight if they are to have any chance of overhauling the 2-0 deficit.
