Arsenal have included striker Robin van Persie in the squad which travelled to Italy for Tuesday´s Champions League clash against AC Milan.

The Dutchman has endured an injury-plagued campaign, and has not featured since January 9, but manager Arsene Wenger is happy Van Persie has sufficiently recovered from a thigh problem to be in contention.

Winger Emmanuel Eboue - who can play in Europe despite his domestic ban - was also on the plane as part of the 18-man squad which left Luton Airport this afternoon. However, centre-back Kolo Toure (knee) and midfielder Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) were not match fit and did not travel.
