Arsenal skipper Laurent Koscielny is set to have a scan on his thigh injury ahead of the FA Cup fifth-round tie at non-league Sutton on Monday.
The French defender was forced off in Wednesday's 5-1 Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich and is unlikely to feature at Gander Green Lane.
Lucas Perez (hamstring), Aaron Ramsey (calf) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) are all unavailable for the match being played on an artificial surface.
Wenger will be desperate for a turnaround in fortunes following the midweek misery in Germany and speaking in Friday's press conference stressed that the Bayern result would not affect team selection.
The French boss, who revealed he he won't retire this summer, even if it meant managing a club other than Arsenal, said: "It will be a normal team. Everyone focuses on the next game, to take care of the consequences a disappointing result can have on everybody's spirit.
"We need to make sure we bounce back and focus on the next game. We have to deal with the media and our job is to and analyse with clarity what happened [against Bayern]. We can't influence the last result.
"I gave [young players] a chance because they deserved to play [in the last round]. They have done well and one or two might have another opportunity."
Wenger also confirmed Alexis Sanchez is in Barcelona for a court case over tax fraud allegations, but believed the Chilean would be back in training on Saturday.
