Arsenal are waiting on the fitness of defender Gael Clichy (back) and midfielder Denilson (groin) ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash with Wolves, after it was confirmed captain Cesc Fabregas will miss the rest of the season with a broken leg.
Andrey Arshavin and William Gallas (both calf) also picked up injuries during the midweek 2-2 Champions League quarter-final first leg against Barcelona and will be out for around three weeks.
Veterans Mikael Silvestre and Sol Campbell are in contention, while Thomas Vermaelen is available after serving a one--match domestic ban.
England forward Theo Walcott is pressing to start after making an impact from the bench against Barcelona.
Robin van Persie (ankle) is back in training, but is still a couple of weeks away from a return.
Provisional Squad: Almunia, Sagna, Vermaelen, Campbell, Silvestre, Nasri, Song, Diaby, Rosicky, Walcott, Bendtner, Fabianski, Eboue, Traore, Vela, Eduardo, Eastmond, Merida, Clichy, Denilson.
