Arsenal will leave it as a late as possible to decide on the fitness of captain Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) ahead of Monday night's Barclays Premier League top-of-the-table clash at Manchester United.
Full-back Kieran Gibbs is out after injuring his ankle in the midweek Champions League win over Partizan Belgrade, but both Gael Clichy (virus) and Johan Djourou (thigh) should travel to Old Trafford.
Goalkeeper Manuel Almunia (elbow), centre-back Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles) and midfielder Abou Diaby (ankle) remain out.
Team (from): Fabianski, Sagna, Squillaci, Djourou, Eboue, Arshavin Song, Wilshere, Nasri, van Persie, Chamakh, Szczesny, Denilson, Rosicky, Koscielny, Walcott, Bendtner, Clichy, Fabregas.
