Podolski out for Bayern, Szczesny rested

Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski has been ruled out of Wednesday night's clash against Bayern Munich with an ankle injury, while goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is rested.

• Mangan: It's all about performance
• Schaaf: Hope for Arsenal?

The Gunners are 3-1 down heading to Munich for the second leg with little hope of progress and, with an important Premier League tie this weekend against high-flying Swansea, manager Arsene Wenger has made four changes.

A statement on the Arsenal website read: " Lukasz Fabianski, Abou Diaby, Andrey Arshavin and Kieran Gibbs have all been included in the 18-man group for the Champions League last-16 second leg at Allianz Arena.

"Jack Wilshere and Lukas Podolski (both ankle) have been left out, while Wojciech Szczesny has been rested. Meanwhile, Nacho Monreal is ineligible for the match, having represented Malaga in the group stages of the competition."

Wilshere was already ruled out earlier on Tuesday, and is set to miss three weeks with an ankle complaint.
