Santi Cazorla will miss Arsenal’s FA Cup fifth round clash with Liverpool this weekend through illness.
Arsene Wenger confirmed that the Spanish playmaker will be absent for Sunday’s game at his pre-match press conference this morning.
But the Gunners boss is pleased to be able to call upon the services of Mathieu Flamini as he seeks to eradicate the memories of last week’s 5-1 drubbing by the Reds.
He said: “We have no Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla, so Flamini is very welcome back.”
Wenger added: “You want an opportunity to put things right and we have that opportunity on Sunday.”
