Freddie Ljungberg will miss Manchester City's visit to Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Swedish midfielder picked up a hamstring injury in the 2-1 victory against Bolton on Saturday. His absence means Arsène Wenger is forced to change a winning side however it could be the only alteration the manager makes.

Speaking exclusively to Arsenal TV Online on Monday afternoon, the Frenchman stressed the need for consistency in his selection at the moment.

"We lost Freddie Ljungberg on Saturday with a hamstring injury but everybody else should be available," said Wenger.

"There will not be too much rotation I think. We feel that stability is important at the moment. We are not in other competitions and we know we have a breather before the Tottenham game. Therefore I feel it is important to gain a little bit of stability at the moment."

Arsenal TV Online subscribers will have the chance to see the full video interview on Tuesday morning. In it, Arsène Wenger talks about: the Bolton game, Cesc Fabregas' nominations for Player of the Year award, his choice for the crown, how he nearly signed Didier Drogba for Arsenal, Man City's revival, the form of Richard Dunne and Emile Mpenza.

Remember this is Arsène Wenger's only pre-match interview ahead of the Man City game. If you want to hear his thoughts directly before they are picked up by other news sources then become an Arsenal TV Online subscriber.
