A weakened Arsenal will contain a host of Arsenal's up and comers. Wegner said: "A big test is coming for them. It's a critical time from 19-22 but if you are good enough you'll play," said Wenger.
"David Bentley is a great talent, technically a top, top player but he needs to play in the first team now.
"Jose Reyes needs to adapt to England and Jeremie Aliadiere has an English spirit and must play games too."
It'll be a tall task, but with Portsmouth riding high in the form charts, and with the pressure off, it's certainly a possibility.
