The Gunners boss was pleased to confirm a huge injury boost with the news that Jack Wilshere's injury isn't serious and he could even make the trip to the South Coast this weekend.
"From Wednesday night we had Jack, who was injured", Wenger said.
"Last season I was on the bench but remember it being a really good game, we were 3-0 down and had to come back", Holding told Arsenal's official website. I saw him walking yesterday, he's not yet out of the game on Sunday. "He is not out of the game on Sunday yet".
The Gunners will travel to the Vitality Stadium with a point to prove, just a week after they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Nottingham Forest.More news: 'Are you a racist?' Donald Trump questioned over 's***hole' remarks

The north London side are now in sixth place as they try to get back into the top four this season under Arsene Wenger and bring Champions League football back to The Emirates.
Asked about Ozil's injury, Wenger added: 'It's his knee.
'We have an uncertainty about Ozil, he will have a test tomorrow, that at the moment is a big 50/50 for Bournemouth'. He had a swollen knee and a recurrence of what he had two or three weeks ago - that's why he wasn't involved on Wednesday'.
Few expected the midfielder to miss the next few weeks after seeing him limp off the field on Wednesday night but it seems that that will not be the case.
