Kallstrom set to make shock full debut against Wigan in FA Cup

Kim Kallstrom is set to make his full Arsenal debut in the FA Cup, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Swedish midfielder has played just 11 minutes of football for the Gunners since signing on loan from Spartak Moscow until the end of the season.

He was used in a cameo role by Arsene Wenger during Arsenal's disappointing 2-2 draw with Swansea last month.

The newspaper reports that Wenger is set to play Kallstrom at Wembley alongside Aaron Ramsey because he doesn't believe Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can cope with Arsenal's fixture schedule.

After the Gunners play Wigan on Saturday, they face West Ham at home on Tuesday followed by a trip to Hull a week Saturday.

Wenger is unable to call on Mathieu Flamini who is suspended, while Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere are still injured.

Also in contention for a place in Saturday's starting line up is Lukasz Fabianski who missed Sunday's trip to Everton through injury.
