Tomas Rosicky may yet miss the Champions League tie at Barcelona because of Karl Henry's challenge on Saturday.

The Wolves midfielder went through the back of the Czech international during the second half at Emirates Stadium over the weekend and was shown a straight red card.

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy disputed the decision and, at the time, Wenger himself was unsure over the validity of the sending off but the damage on Rosicky's leg is still evident.

Apparently there are four visible stud marks and, as a result, he is rated as 50:50 for the Champions League Quarter-Final second leg at the Nou Camp.  

"We will see about him tomorrow," said Wenger on the eve of the game. "When you look at his calf, you can see the tackle of Henry was not as innocent as it looked."

However the Arsenal manager would be not be drawn into a deep discussion with such a massive game coming up.

"I let people talk," he said. "We have to focus on this game rather than answer the critics. We are used to that. No matter what happens, we always get that. We have to focus on this game."
