Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas will remain out of the squad for Saturday's league clash at Hull City.

The Spaniard missed the midweek 5-0 thrashing of FC Porto due to a hamstring injury he sustained against Burnley last weekend and he was originally earmarked to return for the KC stadium fixture but Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said he would need a miracle to be right to take on the Tigers.

"His chances of playing are 0.5 percent - that means unless a miracle happens, he will not play. At the moment, he is out of Saturday's game," the Frenchman told the club's official website.
