As Arsene Wenger says however, missing players won't be used as an excuse for losing next weekend:
"We have players out through injuries but others have shown they can perform well and we will have no excuses for losing. In earlier rounds I have not had players like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira in the starting team, but I have always picked a side that I believed would win the match.
"Now we have Sol Campbell out through a harsh suspension and Vieira still missing with his knee injury, but I have some choices to make because, hopefully, we will have a few of the other injured players back.
"It will be a big test again. We have just beaten Southampton 6-1 but we expect a much different game against them in Cardiff and with a lot of different players involved on both sides
"We have regrets about the 3-2 defeat we suffered against them (in December). They made it very tough for us and I am convinced they will play that way again."
