Arsene Wenger is facing one of the toughest calls of his managerial career over whether to rest Robin van Persie for the game against Wolves - a move which could wreck the Arsenal striker's bid to break Alan Shearer's record for most Premier League goals in a calendar year.

Van Persie moved within two goals of Shearer's six-year-old Premier League record last week when he slotted home a penalty against Aston Villa to take his tally for 2011 to 34 goals.

Arsenal face Wolves at home before making the short trip to Loftus Road to face QPR on New Year's Eve - two games in which Van Persie would be expected to add to his tally.
