FA Bend Rules For Arsenal!

Emmanuel Adebayor clearly head-butted team-mate Nicklas Bendtner in Tuesday's League Cup semi-final thrashing by Spurs, but he has escaped punishment for his bust-up.

Why? You tell me.

Bendtner was struck but the FA decided against disciplinary action, and both are free to play against Newcastle on Saturday.

Wenger will drop his Reserve side (that he saves for League Cup action, and beat Newcastle in Round Three) and bring back first team players.

Wenger: "I will rotate, yes.

"Some players will go out and some players who were rested will come in."

Defenders Philippe Senderos and Gael Clichy may return against the Magpies after recovering from their respective nose and groin injuries.
