Arsenal look to cut into the 10-point Manchester United lead, when they visit Bloomfield Road to play Blackpool on Sunday.
The Gunners will need to be in top form if they hope win the Premier League, as only eight games remain on their schedule.
Cesc Fabregas and Aaron Ramsey are expected to be fit for Sunday's match, while there is concern about Bacary Sagna's knee and Theo Walcott's ankle. Alex Song has already been ruled out.
Arsenal has been hit with a string of bad luck this season due to a collection of injuries, but were able to escape a recent one when Fabregas managed to avoid being hurt in an auto accident.
Arsene Wenger's squad are looking to reverse their fortunes with Sunday's match before hosting Liverpool next week.
The Gunners have tied their last three games, and have only scored two goals in that span. Those are not the results they need to win the Premier League title.
Their opponent has had recent struggles in a difficult season. Blackpool have one draw and three losses in their last four matches.
On Sunday, Blackpool will have the services of striker DJ Campbell, who completed his three-match suspension. Campbell has nine goals in 23 games.
However, defender David Carney remains sidelined with a shoulder injury and will undergo surgery.
Blackpool remain in danger of being relegated, as they only have a one-point advantage over West Ham and Wolverhampton, and are just two points ahead of last-place Wigan.
When the two teams met in August at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal gave Blackpool a 6-0 thumping. Walcott had a hat trick in the match.
