Arsenal have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the FA Cup fifth round replay at Hull City after coming through the thrilling north London draw with Tottenham Hotspur unscathed. The Gunners played the last 35 minutes of the 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane with 10 men after the dismissal of Francis Coquelin, who will miss the tie through suspension, but the squad are not suffering from any physical after-affects.
The clean bill of health means Wenger's side are without seven first-team players for the trip to the KC Stadium, six through injury. Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere are long-term absentees while Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny remain sidelined with calf injuries.
Alex Iwobi will be drafted into the squad and is poised to continue his run of starting every FA Cup game this season, having featured in the two previous rounds against Sunderland and Burnley as well as the goalless draw against Steve Bruce's side last month. Arsenal's attempts at winning the trophy for a third time in a row has otherwise been boosted by news the squad came through the draw at Spurs unhurt.
"We lose Coquelin of course from his bad tackle on Saturday and everyone else looks medically available," he told reporters at a pre-match press conference. "I have to see how everyone has recovered today but overall I think we should have the same squad that went to Tottenham plus Iwobi certain will be added to the squad."
Though Arsenal's 10 men recovered from 2-1 down to grab a point against Tottenham, Leicester City's win at Watford saw them extend their advantage over Wenger's third-placed side to eight points. The French boss is however unwilling to concede the title and would not be draw on whether the cup represents the club's best chance of silverware this season.
"We will play a team with the most chance to qualify and no matter who plays," the Arsenal boss said on his selection policy for the tie on Tuesday [8 March]. "David Ospina is an example of that. I have the same respect and idea that every player in my squad can play and win the game tomorrow.
"I believe the championship is far from being over. I just remind you we have beaten Leicester twice so we have done our job against them so people have to look at the other teams; not so much us on that front. We will not give up in the championship, we will fight until the end."
