Team News: Wolves v Arsenal

Arsenal will be without five players for tonight’s match with Wolves.

Laurent Koscielny is suspended after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season in Sunday’s win over Manchester City.

Had he picked up his 10th booking tonight the defender would have received a letter from the FA with a warning about his future conduct.

Gervinho missed the game with the Citizens with a knock but could return for tonight’s game at Molineux.

Abou Diaby, Francis Coquelin could return for Monday’s game with Wigan, while Per Mertesacker and Jack Wilshere are all out with long-term injuries.

Squad: Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Song, Arteta, Rosicky, Gervinho, Walcott, van Persie, Fabianski, Djourou, Santos, Jenkinson, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Benayoun, Chamakh.
