Napoli include Raul Albiol in their squad for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium despite the defender's injury problem.

Napoli coach Rafael Benitez has included Raul Albiol in his squad for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Arsenal, despite the Spanish defender struggling with injury.

Albiol was withdrawn at half time during yesterday's 2-0 win over Genoa in Serie A with a muscle problem, allowing club captain Paolo Cannavaro to deputise.

Despite that fitness doubt, Benitez has included the former Real Madrid stopper in his travelling party to the Emirates Stadium, alongside the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Marek Hamsik.

Higuain and Hamsik were left out of the starting XI to face Genoa as Benitez made wholesale changes, but both are expected to return on Tuesday.

The Azzurri have made a strong start to the season under Benitez, winning six out of seven in all competitions and setting the pace in Serie A alongside Roma and Juventus.
