Arsène Wenger has one in and two out for Wednesday’s trip to Burnley.

Denilson has been ruled out of the Premier League clash at Turf Moor with a back injury and Armand Traore has been sidelined by the hamstring problem which forced him off in the closing stages at Anfield on Sunday.

But there is brighter news for Emmanuel Eboue who returns to the squad after missing the win at Liverpool with a hamstring injury of his own.

“We had a short recovery time [from Sunday’s game] so we have a few bumps and bruises,” said Wenger at his pre-match press conference.

“Denilson will not be available but apart from that everybody should travel. We have Eboue back in the squad.”

Denilson has only recently returned from a 10-week lay-off caused by a back injury but Wenger is hopeful that the Brazilian midfielder will return much quicker this time.

“He should be available for Saturday [against Hull] but we still have to check that it’s not a recurrence of his back problem,” said the manager.”
