Arsenal are set to welcome back Kolo Toure and Tomas Rosicky for the trip to Reading on Monday.

Both missed the midweek draw at Slavia Prague with minor knocks. Toure hurt his calf against Manchester United while Rosicky was out with a groin problem. Philippe Senderos has returned to training after his back injury but will not be risked. However he and Robin van Persie (knee) are still on course to be available for the visit of Wigan to Emirates Stadium on November 24.

"It looks like Kolo and Tomas will recover," Arsène Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Thursday afternoon. "Senderos will not be completely competitive for this game even though he is back in full training. So the only real injury in the squad is Robin van Persie."

Arsenal TV Online subscribers will be able to see the entire video interview with Arsène Wenger on Friday morning. In it, the Frenchman talks about: the draw at Slavia, winning the group, his rotation policies, going for the Premier League and the Champions League together, signing someone in the January transfer window, Reading, Monday night games and the 26-game unbeaten run.
