Highbury last season
The Irish international’s return to fitness will allow Sir Bobby to field his first choice defence against the Champions, with Aaron Hughes returning to left back and Olivier Bernard reverting to the bench.

During Friday’s press conference Sir Bobby said: "We have not seen much of Andy O'Brien on the training ground lately because of his back injury.

"But he got in a good session yesterday without breaking down and he has a great chance of being available for us tomorrow."
