Thierry Henry will miss Arsenal's trip to Bolton on Saturday.
The captain has picked up a neck injury and will be out for the short term.
"Thierry has an inflammation of his neck," said Arsène Wenger in his pre-match press conference. "That is a handicap for playing Bolton.
"He had a problem with his back a little bit earlier and he came in stiff on Wednesday. It has not improved a lot since. It's a short term thing. He should be OK for Wednesday [at Fulham]."
