The Gunners' injury absences are worrying the French boss ahead of their crucial Premier League clash against their North London rivals

Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal's growing injury list is becoming a major concern ahead of the north London derby against Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal       -        Tottenham

The Gunners suffered a dreadful 5-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday, but sit level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

Arsenal have a string of first-team players - Hector Bellerin (groin), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Theo Walcott (calf), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Jack Wilshere (ankle), Tomas Rosicky (knee) and Danny Welbeck (knee) – currently out of action.

Laurent Koscielny (hip) and Mikel Arteta (foot) will undergo late fitness tests to see if they can be fit to face Spurs, leaving Wenger worried ahead of a crucial period of the season.

"I am very concerned because we are only in November and we have so many players out," said Wenger.

"We go into the Christmas period and I am concerned because we have too many out. I give Koscielny 80 per cent chance [to play Spurs]. He will have a test Saturday morning, so will Mikel Arteta."

Wenger feels it is still premature to properly judge whether his side can win the league, but is happy to be in a position of strength after 11 games.

He added: "It is too early to say [if Arsenal can win the title]. We want to be in the fight and I believe we can but it is too early.
