Arsenal are set to welcome back Theo Walcott and Jack WIlshere for Saturday's game against Norwich City which could see The Gunners move into third place ahead of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

Should Arsenal pick up a win at the Emirates Stadium then they would move one point ahead of both Tottenham and Chelsea who were due to meet this weekend, but the fixture was postponed with The Blues' FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City taking place over the same weekend.

Just over a month ago it had seemed as though Arsenal's chances of grabbing a top four finish were fading after they suffered a 2-1 loss to bitter rivals Tottenham. However, they have bounced back in superb style having won their last three league games.

With seven games remaining, manager Arsene Wenger knows how important it is to continue picking up positive results and it will be a major boost to be able to call upon Walcott and Wilshere.

"Jack has joined normal training since Wednesday and Theo should join in tomorrow. They are 90 per cent available for Saturday," Wenger told

WIlshere has been out of action for just under six weeks after picking up an ankle injury in the north London derby, while Walcott sustained a groin injury while on England duty and has since been working hard to regain full fitness at Arsenal's medical centre in London Colney.

However, there was some negative news as it was revealed that Tomas Rosicky, who scored both goals in the victory over West Brom last weekend, is almost certain to miss the visit of Norwich.

"The other uncertainty we have from last Saturday is Tomas Rosicky, who has a little hamstring irritation. His involvement is yet to be decided as well but it's fair to say that he is a big doubt for Saturday," added Wenger.

Per Mertesacker will also miss the game after picking up a red card against West Bromwich Albion meaning that captain Thomas Vermaelen is likely to earn a recall after a spell out of the first team.
