A spate of injuries dog Arsenal yet again. The Villareal draw proved Pyrrhic.
William Gallas season ended with a medial collateral ligament injury when he collided with Rossi. In his place, Wenger will start Djourou.
Rossi was also involved in a collision with Almunia which resulted in the Spaniard's suffering a bruised ankle bone. Gael Clichy strained his back. Both are doubtful for the match against Wigan. Fabianski will get a start but Clichy's left back position is harder to fill. Wenger could start Kieran Gibbs who has already come on as a sub for Clichy.
