Sunday's game is not only the farewell to Highbury, it is also the last competitive game of football for Dennis Bergkamp on English soil.

The Dutch striker retires at the end of this season and, after being left out at Manchester City on Thursday, there may have been a few fears that Bergkamp, 37 on Wednesday, would not have the opportunity for one last Premiership game.

At his press conference ahead of the all-important match with Wigan, Arsène Wenger allayed those concerns.

"He will be involved in the squad - 100 per cent," said the manager.

"It will be very emotional because he is part of that history at Highbury. Nobody will ever forget him.

"As much as Thierry Henry is a top target striker, Dennis Bergkamp, as a provider, was unique."
