Arsene Wenger has confirmed Sol Campbell is likely to be handed a start against Tottenham on Wednesday.
The 35-year-old sat out Arsenal’s last outing at Barcelona due to a fitness concern but he should be fit for tomorrow’s North London derby.
Wenger also confirmed Van Persie will be named in the squad to face Spurs during his press-conference on Tuesday while Campbell is now set to take on the hostility of White Hart Lane again.
“I can tell you he will play. He’s been good for us, he can handle it, I didn’t think he’d play as many games” Wenger said.
