last updated Friday 19th April 2013, 3:43 PM

Steve Sidwell returns to the Fulham squad for the Barclays Premier League visit of Arsenal.

The 30-year-old midfielder has missed the last three matches after being sent off against QPR but is back to face his former club.

Sascha Riether is a doubt after picking up a knock against Chelsea in midweek, while Damien Duff (adductor), Ashkan Dejagah (ankle) and Mahamadou Diarra (knee) are all out.

On-loan Emmanuel Frimpong is ineligible to face his parent club, but Alex Kacaniklic could be involved after being recalled from a loan spell at Burnley.

Arsenal will again be without goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski because of a cracked rib.

Fellow Pole Wojciech Szczesny will get the chance to reclaim the number one jersey again, while midfielder Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) faces a fitness test.

Left-back Nacho Monreal is pressing for a start after being named on the bench for the last two games, as is forward Lukas Podolski, but midfielder Abou Diaby (knee) is a long-term absentee.
