Arsène Wenger will rotate his side for the trip to Reading on Monday but, as yet, he does not know how much.
The Arsenal manager made eight changes for the Champions League game at Slavia Prague on Wednesday and, although the performance was disjointed, the 0-0 draw they obtained suggests it was a gamble worth taking.
Wenger will have the octet back at his disposal on Monday and, given that Manchester United may have assumed top spot by the time his side kick-off at the Madejski Stadium, many of them are likely to come back.
"I will change things around," he said at Friday's press conference. "I don't know by how much though. I left out eight players at Slavia and they are all capable to play again.
"We have just Van Persie injured now. Senderos is back in full training but we will not use him on Monday because he has not played at all. Rosicky is back and Toure is back. They had a good session today.
"Kolo has a small calf problem in midweek but had it been a Champions League Final then he would have played."
