Arsenal forward Theo Walcott faces a fitness test ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash with north-London rivals Tottenham at Emirates Stadium.

The 23-year-old pulled out of the England squad for the midweek friendly in Sweden after suffering an injury to his buttock muscles in last week's 3-3 draw against Fulham. Arsenal will also assess goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who could be back in the side for the first time since September after recovering from an ankle problem, while midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another who will be monitored.

Manager Arsene Wenger said on the club's official website, www.arsenal.com: "They all have a chance to be in the squad. Walcott came off against Fulham and will have a test, so will Szczesny."
