Arsenal have been handed a boost with the news Theo Walcott is set to return to action against Bolton on Wednesday.
Walcott has been out of action since December with a hamstring problem, but he is back in the squad for the second meeting with Bolton in three days.
Brazilian midfielder Denilson is also available after recovering from a rib injury sustained in the draw with Everton earlier this month.
"Denilson and Walcott are available for Wednesday night," Gunners boss Arsene Wenger told the club's official website.
"It is a big boost of course because they were out for a while and it gives us some fresh players. Walcott has been unlucky with some small niggling injuries and so it is good to have him back.
Fran Merida looks set to be the only other absentee from the squad that beat Bolton 2-0 on Sunday after he picked up an ankle injury.
"We lost Fran Merida, who unfortunately got kicked straight away when he came on and his ankle was very bad today and that is all we should lose," Wenger added.
Wenger also revealed Nicklas Bendtner could also make his long awaited return to action against Aston Villa later this month.
The Dane has been on the sidelines since October after undergoing hernia surgery, but Wenger is hopeful he will return to the trip to Villa Park on Wednesday week.
"Nicklas Bendtner should be available for the Villa game on January 27 too. He should be back from next week onwards - Monday or Tuesday. Maybe he will not be completely ready for Stoke but, after that, he should be able to be in the squad.
BlowHowever, Samir Nasri and Aaron Ramsey face spells on the sidelines after missing the win over Bolton with knocks.
Wenger expects the duo to be sidelined for three weeks, but hopes they could return sooner than expected.
"Samir Nasri and Ramsey are both out for 21 days," continued Wenger.
"Let's say we can have a good surprise with both because they are usually quick recovering players but our common sense tells us 21 days."
