Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that doubts hang over the fitness of a number of his players ahead of Tuesday's meeting with West Ham.

The Gunners booked a spot in the FA Cup final at the weekend after beating Wigan Athletic at Wembley. However, needing extra time and penalties, the team's fitness was pushed to the limit.

And Wenger has revealed Arsenal's shape ahead of locking horns with the Hammers.

"We have plenty of uncertainties. We will have a lot of tests today", Wenger told a press conference via his club's feed.


"[Tomas] Rosicky and [Laurent] Koscielny will undergo tests today.

"[Lukas] Podolski, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain and [Nacho] Monreal are also doubts", he concluded.

Arsenal find themselves now sitting fifth in the Premier League and out of the Champions League qualification spots after being overtaken by Everton while on FA Cup duty.

They will have the chance to return to the top four, at least for 24 hours, if they can see off West Ham at the Emirates Stadium.
