The Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger, is hoping that midfielder Abou Diaby will be fit enough to play in Sunday's north London showdown at Tottenham because it increases the team's chances of shackling Gareth Bale.

"It is a question of days," the Arsenal manager said of Diaby's calf problem. "He will have tests and then we will see if we can use him on Sunday or not. It is a 50-50."
