Rosicky is doubtful for the game with the league leaders as he’s being bothered by an ankle injury.
“We have a doubt about Rosicky,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com. “He will have a test this [Friday] morning on his ankle.
“Apart from that we have no major problem. That issue will be decided after training, everybody else will be available.”
