Arsenal latest: Legend 'sorry' for hurting Spurs; Wenger 'concerns' over injury list

All the latest news and gossip from the past 24 hours at The Emirates.

Arsenal could out number Wigan Athletic fans by two to one at the FA Cup semi-final in April. Arsenal have received a 42,882 ticket allocation with Wigan getting just 22,807.

Wigan however agreed with the allocation based on their ticket sales for recent visits to the capital.

The game kicks off at 17:00 on April 12th.

Arsene Wenger has revealed the extent of Mesut Ozil’s hamstring injury. The German international picked up the problem after just two minutes of the recent Champions League tie against Bayern Munich - and could now face up to six weeks out of action with the problem.

"When the minimum is three, the maximum is six so let's say four weeks out. Ozil had a very good game against Everton but he was handicapped early on in the Bayern game.”

Nicklas Bendtner’s career at Arsenal, it seems, is over. He was in Copenhagen this week as Arsenal drew 1-1 with Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

He also allegedly got drunk and got up to his usual ridiculous antics.

Wenger said he would be punished for the latest indiscretion - and it seems he might not play for the team again:

"I don't know exactly what happened because I haven't spoken to him yet, the only thing that is for sure is that he had nothing to do in Copenhagen. Nobody gave him any permission to go there so he will be fined for that. Has he created some problem there? I don't know. He is at the end of his contract in the summer."

Ahead of the North London Derby a divisive figure on both sides of the rivalry has spoken about his infamous switch from white to red.

Sol Campbell left Tottenham Hotspur on a Bosman ruling in 2001 for Arsenal - rejecting Manchester United and AC Milan in the process.

And he apologised for the move - but insisted he had no regrets over his decision:

“I'm sorry about the situation with me going and I’m sorry how it happened. I’m not going to apologise for the move (to Arsenal) because I was very successful. I’m sorry about the hurt it inflicted on them.”

It also looks as though Arsenal could be about to take a look at their medical and training methods.

It comes as Wenger admitted ‘concerns’ over the length of his injury list:

“I am concerned that happens. If you look at our overall injury list going into such a final decisive part of the season, we have no Wilshere, Walcott, Ozil, Ramsey. We went to Bayern with no Gibbs or Monreal. Of course it is a concern. For some, like Walcott, it is completely bad luck, the rest maybe we have to find out why it happened. We are analysing very deeply why it happened to see if there is a link between these injuries."
