The year 2010 was neither a good nor a bad for Arsenal at all. This year, they got memorable victory against Chelsea, but they received a disappoint draw over 10-man Wigan. If Arsenal can win the match then they will share the top place with Manchester United.
It looks like that injury is the big problem for Arsenal football club. This English football club will be missing many of their key players when they will take on host Birmingham at the St Andrew's stadium.
Arsenal will have to play without their key player, Abou Diaby, as this midfielder picked up a calf strain in Tuesday's draw at Wigan.

The good news for the Gunners is that captain, Cesc Fabregas, will be available for tomorrow’s match. He was suspended for the game against Wigan.
