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.

Meanwhile, Robin van Persie is suspended while Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) and William Gallas (thigh) are still out injured.

"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]."
