Arsenal are scheduled to play Preston in the FA Cup and Wenger has to rotate his team after playing three matches in the last eight days.
Wenger could also be tempted to bring Danny Welbeck back into the squad, having said the England forward is looking sharp in training after returning from a long-term knee injury.
However, Wenger’s ability to rotate is limited by injuries with Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs still doubtful, while Mohamed Elneny is away on international duty with Egypt.
Mesut Ozil, who missed the team’s last two Premier League games with an illness is back to London and has started training with the squad. He may be involved but not for the entire duration.
Some of the youngsters will certainly get a run.]
