Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain faces fitness test ahead of Manchester United trip
Arsenal head to Manchester United tomorrow reporting no fresh injury worries from their thrilling midweek Capital One Cup win at Reading.
England midfielder Jack Wilshere and full-back Bacary Sagna are both likely to be in contention, but forward Theo Walcott - whose hat-trick helped the Gunners comeback from 4-0 down to win 7-5 - may be back on the bench after playing all 120 minutes at the Madejski Stadium.
Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hip) faces a fitness test, but winger Gervinho (ankle) will be out for around three weeks, while defender Kieran Gibbs (thigh), first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (ankle), midfielder Abou Diaby (thigh) and Czech winger Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) all continue their rehabilitation.
Provisional Squad: Mannone, Santos, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Sagna, Ramsey, Cazorla, Arteta, Wilshere, Podolski, Giroud, Martinez, Jenkinson, Walcott, Arshavin, Koscielny, Coquelin, Chamakh, Oxlade-Chamberlain.
