Arsène Wenger expects to see Nicklas Bendtner back in action in two weeks' time.
The Danish striker was last seen limping off during the north London derby on October 31 with a groin problem. Bendtner has since undergone surgery on a hernia but his initial injury has taken longer to heal.
Finally though, the end of the road is in sight for the 21-year-old after a successful return to training on Friday.
"He is doing well in training and had a good session today, so the news is quite good," said Wenger.
"I would say he could be back in two weeks."
The manager confirmed the team news announced on Arsenal.com on Thursday with Tomas Rosicky set to return against Everton. However, one new name has been added to the injury list.
"Compared to the squad who was available against Bolton, we just have Rosicky back," said Wenger, "but Jack Wilshere out with a small hamstring problem.
"We do not think it is a very big [problem]."
