Arsène Wenger hopes to have his entire squad back in
training by the middle of next week.
Jens Lehmann (elbow), William Gallas (groin), Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) and Alex Song (calf) will have returned by the time Arsenal kick-off against Sunderland on Sunday. Eduardo (groin) will follow a few days later.
"Jens Lehmann and William Gallas are already back in full training," said Wenger at Friday's pre-match press conference. "Tomas Rosicky and Alex Song should be back tomorrow. Eduardo should be back on Tuesday."
The manager added that Lehmann would not start at the weekend. He said: "Jens will go with the national team but will not play on Sunday."
