Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to be handed his second consecutive start for the Gunners.
The Welsh international will return to the ground where he broke his leg last season, with central defender Ryan Shawcross set to go head-to-head with the player for the first time since the horrific injury occurred on February 27th, 2010.
Ramsey insists he holds no grudge over the incident with the former Manchester United trainee, although confirmed that he never responded to the centre back's apologies.
After scoring the winner in the 1-0 win against United last Sunday, Ramsey is ready to continue in the absence of Arsenal club captain Cesc Fabregas and Arsene Wenger confirmed that the youngster will feature on Sunday.
“Thomas Vermaelen is available and could be in the squad. Aaron Ramsey is likely to get another chance, I can even say that he will play,” the Frenchman told the official Arsenal website.
The young Gunner has spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City this season, but could force his way back into the Arsenal fold as a first team regular with a performance similar to the one at the Emirates.
Vermaelen, who hasn't made a senior appearance for Arsenal since injuring himself on international duty with Belgium, completed 90 minutes for the reserves last week and would provide the club with a major boost.
