Arsène Wenger will be able to select his side for the massive game against Manchester United on Saturday from the same squad that brought back a battling point from Liverpool last weekend.
The Arsenal manager continues to be without Robin van Persie (knee) and Philippe Senderos (back) but, crucially, there are no additional injuries.
"It is the same - Senderos and Van Persie," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Thursday. "Everybody else looks to be available."
The pair have missed the last four games and it appears they are likely to be sidelined until the end of the month.
"After the Reading game [on November 12] there is an international break of two weeks," said Wenger. "They should be back following that."
That means they would not be available for Arsenal until Wigan's visit to Emirates Stadium on November 24.
Arsenal TV Online subscribers will be able to see the full interview on Friday morning. In it, the manager talks about:

  • the win at Sheffield United
  • Eduardo's goals
  • giving the captaincy to Fabianski
  • injury news
  • the 'throwback' of this Arsenal v Man United game
  • early kick-offs
  • pairing up Tevez and Rooney
  • England bidding for the World Cup
  • Michel Platini's comments about Arsenal's recruitment policy
