TEAM NEWS – Arsenal
Denmark forward Nicklas Bendtner could well come back into the starting XI for the hosts following an ankle injury, while fit-again Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may feature and Lukasz Fabianski will be in goal.
Midfielder Thomas Rosicky, though, will be rested as he has been training in a protective mask since suffering a broken nose at Aston Villa.
TEAM NEWS – Coventry
Leon Clarke will lead the line for Coventry as they travel to the capital to face Premier League leaders Arsenal.
The wantaway striker remains at the club with manager Steven Pressley claiming there have been no bids for the 28-year-old, who will be looking to put himself further in the shop window in front of the TV cameras on Friday night.
Forward Callum Wilson remains sidelined with a dislocated shoulder but Pressley otherwise expects to have a fully-fit squad.
