Tamas is struggling to overcome a calf problem and, if he is ruled out, is likely to be replaced by Pablo Ibanez.
Late fitness test: Tamas (right) looks unlikely to start at Arsenal
Ibanez's only previous league start was in the 6-0 reversal at Chelsea. Thomas is suffering from a groin injury and Cameroon international Somen Tchoyi is on standby.
Team (from): Carson, Olsson, Brunt, Thomas, Shorey, Mulumbu, Odemwingie, Fortune, Tamas, Scharner, Jara, Myhill, Tchoyi, Ibanez, Barnes, Bednar, Reid, Dorrans, Zuiverloon, Meite.
