The first-choice trio of Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac remain injured ahead of Wednesday's trip to Stamford Bridge with none of the three to have featured this year.
Arsenal put their disappointing Emirates FA Cup ouster to Nottingham Forest behind them as they battled Chelsea to a 0-0 draw in the first-leg semi-final of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.
The tournament is better known to football fans as the League Cup.
Wenger was watching from the press box as he serves his touchline ban and the Gunners boss was shifting anxiously in his seat early on when Hazard's pass gave Alvaro Morata an opportunity that he drove into the side-netting.
Eden Hazard is expected to start the game as he seems to have recovered from his calf injury. New January signing Ross Barkley is fit again after missing six months of action and could be named on the substitutes bench having trained with the team.
Arsene Wenger has promised that future talks will be held during the January transfer window, but the club has been slow to move, reportedly waiting on the midfielder to hit his peak form and fitness.
Wenger was given marching orders for the successive three Arsenal matches and he was also fined £40,000 for verbally abusing referee Mike Dean in the referee's changing room and questioning the referee's integrity. "Our run in this competition hasn't been easy".
"He is a superstar approaching the levels of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil but, crucially, he wants to play for Arsenal". "We want to try to do our best to reach the final".
