Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels the return of Eduardo, Theo Walcott, along with recovering captain Cesc Fabregas, will prove decisive as the Gunners head into the final phase of the season.

"We are going into the final sprint. For us it is important to keep all our targets alive," said Wenger, whose team have closed the gap on Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League down to just three points.
