Wolves boss Terry Connor will have the same group to select from as he did for the 2-1 defeat at Stoke on Saturday, with sidelined trio Jamie O’Hara, Stephen Hunt (both groin) and Jody Craddock (hamstring) the only players unavailable.

It remains to be seen whether or not regular captain Roger Johnson – dropped to the bench for the Potters match a week after his on-field confrontation with Wanderers goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey – regains his place in the team, with Connor insisting that incident had not played any part in his decision to demote the defender.

Arsenal will be without defender Laurent Koscielny.

Koscielny serves a two-match ban for picking up his 10th yellow card of the season in Sunday’s win over Manchester City, hours before the amnesty cut-off.

Gervinho missed the City match with a knock, the game came too early for Abou Diaby and Francis Coquelin (both hamstring), while Per Mertesacker and midfielder Jack Wilshere (both ankle) remain sidelined.

Wolves (from): Hennessey, De Vries, Zubar, Foley, Stearman, Johnson, Bassong, Berra, Ward, Kightly, Henry, Davis, Milijas, Edwards, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Jonsson, Forde.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Song, Arteta, Rosicky, Gervinho, Walcott, van Persie, Fabianski, Djourou, Santos, Jenkinson, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Benayoun, Chamakh.
