Robin van Persie could start against Wigan tomorrow after playing the last 22 minutes of Wednesday’s defeat at Tottenham.
The Dutchman faces a late fitness test on his tight muscles but may start his first Arsenal game since the 4-1 win at Wolves on November 7.
Meanwhile, Denilson and Alex Song are out with groin problems while Thomas Vermaelen has been ruled out for the season.
“We will have to see how he responds,” said Wenger when asked about van Persie. “He had very tight muscles everywhere [after the Tottenham game] because he had not played at all so we have to see whether we go for the gamble or not.
“If he feels physically all right he will start. If it is a little gamble we will not take it because he has been out for such a long time.”
