Arsene Wenger has hinted that he could have as many as five key men back in contention this weekend.
Arsenal are due to face Premier League newcomers Blackpool at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, looking to bring the Seasiders crashing back to earth following their opening day heroics.
Their cause could be considerably aided by the return of Alex Song, Johan Djourou, Denilson, Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie to the first-team fold.
Song (calf), Djourou (hamstring) and Denilson (abdominal) have all shaken off knocks, Fabregas could be included for the first time since gracing this summer's World Cup final and Van Persie is gunning for a starting berth after stepping off the bench in the 1-1 draw at Liverpool.
Wenger insists he will not be rushing anyone back into the side ahead of schedule, but admits that he could be tempted to ease the quintet back into top flight action.
"All are available - at different levels [of fitness]," Wenger told Arsenal's official website.
"I need to make up my mind who I integrate in the squad. But there is no major problem for anybody really.
"Denilson has not played since 14th April and not played one minute of a game [in pre-season]. He still needs to work. All the others are quite available, at least to be on the bench.
"But at the same time we do not want to rush it. To have a good season you need a good preparation so we want to especially build up Cesc and Van Persie well.
"They came back on 5th August and you need three to four weeks' preparation if you want to do well in the Premier League."
