Emmanuel Adebayor is the only new absentee for the game against Everton on Saturday.

The Togolese striker injured his thigh in the Carling Cup tie at West Brom on Tuesday. He is likely to be sidelined for three weeks. Gael Clichy and Philippe Senderos are available to start if required after they came through a full 90 minutes at The Hawthorns however Freddie Ljungberg is still another 10 days away from fitness.

"The only player who is not available from the squad on Sunday and Tuesday is Adebayor," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Thursday. "But nobody else is back. Freddie Ljungberg and the other players who are injured have not recovered.

"I still give Freddie another 10 days. It is taking some time because he had a set back on his calf."

Arsenal TV Online subscribers will be able to see the full interview on Friday morning. In it the manager discusses: the Reading and West Brom games, the Carling Cup tie at Everton, facing Andy Johnson this weekend plus new contracts for Cesc Fabregas and Kolo Toure.
