Arsenal are set for this weekend's Emirates Cup where they will take on Italian powerhouse AC Milan and Scotland's Celtic.

The four-match series held over two days at the Gunners home, Emirates Stadium, will also feature French club Lyon.

The Gunners are expected to welcome summer signings Marouane Chamakh and Laurent Koscielny but will certainly be without skipper Cesc Fabregas and striker Robin van Persie who have not yet returned to the club following the World Cup final.

Nicklas Bendtner will also take no part as he continues to recover from a groin injury.
