Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger faces an anxious night's sleep over a whole host of selection issues ahead of tomorrow's crunch Premier League clash against West Ham United, with Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Nacho Monreal and Lukas Podolski all struggling as the fight for Champions League football comes into focus.

All three stars are rated doubtful by Wenger following their efforts during last weekend's draining FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic, though Tomas Rosicky and Laurent Koscielny both have a chance of returning tomorrow night if late fitness tests prove positive.

The Gunners need bodies back desperately with their squad stretched to the limit, although Kieran Gibbs came through the Wigan match unscathed after an enforced appearance from the bench.

Gibbs will deputise for Monreal, while Kim Kallstrom should cover for Aaron Ramsey to make his full debut for the Gunners, after the Welshman pushed through to feature in extra-time at Wembley in his first start since Boxing Day.

Olivier Giroud is expected to return after Yaya Sanogo surprisingly took his place in a lone front role against Wigan, with the unlucky man set to be Lukasz Fabianski as he returns to the bench despite being Saturday's penalty hero.

Arsenal predicted XI to face West Ham: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Kallstrom, Rosicky, Podolski, Cazorla, Giroud
