Arsenal could welcome back Emmanuel Eboue ahead of schedule from a knee problem for tomorrow night’s Carling Cup quarter-final against Wigan at Emirates Stadium.

Centre-half Sebastien Squillaci picked up a minor knee problem during Saturday’s win at Aston Villa and captain Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) remains sidelined along with Abou Diaby (ankle) and Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles).

Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott and Nicklas Bendtner could all feature having been unused substitutes at Villa Park, while manager Arsene Wenger must decide whether to recall fit-again goalkeeper Manuel Almunia or give young Pole Wojciech Szczesny another chance.

Provisional Squad: Szczesny, Gibbs, Djourou, Koscielny, Eboue, Denilson, Song, Wilshere, Rosicky, Walcott, van Persie, Almunia, Arshavin, Chamakh, Nasri, Emmanuel-Thomas, Vela, Eastmond, Nordtveit, Clichy.
