Injury worries build up for Wigan ahead of visit of Arsenal
Premier League team news
Friday 21 December 2012
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez again faces an injury headache for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash with Arsenal at the DW Stadium.
He will definitely be without four players after defender Adrian Lopez (hamstring) joined Ben Watson (broken leg), Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) and Albert Crusat (knee) on the long-term injury list.
Another four players should feature over the festive period, with captain Gary Caldwell (hamstring) the most likely to make it for Arsenal ahead of fellow centre-backs Ivan Ramis (hamstring), Antolin Alcaraz (groin) and midfielder James McCarthy (ankle).
Provisional squad: Al Habsi, Pollitt, Beausejour, Caldwell, Boyce, McArthur, Kone, Boselli, Gomez, Jones, McManaman, Fyvie, Stam, Di Santo, Golobart, Redmond, Maloney, Figueroa.
