carlos-vela-swine-flu Carlos Vela was told to stay away from the club’s training ground at London Colney on Monday after club doctors took advice from the  infectious diseases experts.

They were  worried  following a visit last week from the 20-year-old’s family and friends from Mexico. The group also toured the club’s training ground. Vela, who comes from the popular resort city of Cancun, was tested yesterday by Arsenal staff who said he was clear of the bug that has killed more than 150 people in Mexico.

He travelled with the squad for tonight’s game at Old Trafford and is likely to come on as a sub which will be the first leg of the all star premiership tie.

Arsène Wenger, said: “We were asked to keep him at home [on Monday] and he was not allowed to be at the training ground. But he was given the all-clear and was allowed to attend training.” Wenger will await late fitness tests to Kieran Gibbs (ankle) and Mikaël Silvestre (back) before deciding on his side. Gibbs has been carrying a groin injury for several weeks which is also a concern as he prepares to face World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.

Star Andrei Arshavin is cup-tied which means Samir Nasri may be asked to play in the free role behind the lone striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
