Arsenal's France international striker Thierry Henry may miss Wednesday's top-of-the-league clash with Chelsea, manager Arsene Wenger said.

The 27-year-old has a groin injury and missed the FA Cup semi-final victory against Blackburn at the weekend.

"In my opinion Thierry will miss the game," said Wenger on Monday. "We will miss him as he's an exceptional player. But we can do more collectively and try to compensate."

Freddie Ljungberg is also doubtful after he was forced off with a hip injury just after half-time in the 3-0 win at the Millennium Stadium.

The 28-year-old Sweden international picked up the knock against Norwich earlier this month and aggravated it during training the following week.

"Freddie Ljungberg might be out (of the Chelsea game)," Wenger told www.arsenal.com. "His hip problem has come back."

Centre-back Sol Campbell (ankle) is fit but may not be risked against the Premiership leaders.

Wenger added: "Sol is fit to play and I will make a decision over whether to start him. He needs to play a game to find his level and get his confidence back.

"He's not completely 100 percent with his ankle so that's why I give him as much training as I can."
