Arsene Wenger is confident Samir Nasri will be fit and available for selection against Fulham.
The Arsenal midfielder picked up a minor knee problem after coming on as a second-half substitute in the Carling Cup win over Wigan at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
He remains a slight doubt for Saturday's Premier League clash with the Cottagers but is expected to be at Wenger's disposal.
Gunners manager Wenger will still be without Cesc Fabregas, though, due to a hamstring problem that could keep the club captain out for a couple more weeks.
Wenger also faces a difficult decision over whether to name Robin van Persie in his starting line-up or recall Marouane Chamakh.
Dutch forward Van Persie completed 73 minutes against Wigan in what was a first start since the end of August having been sidelined by an ankle injury.
"Nasri has got a knock from Tuesday night. It is a knee problem but he should be all right," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online.
"Apart from that, we do not have any fresh players injured. There are no other ins or outs.
"[Abou] Diaby and [Thomas] Vermaelen are not available. Fabregas is still injured, so it will be a similar squad to the Aston Villa game."
However, Wenger added: "I will see how Robin recovers [before deciding whether to start him].
"I rotate a bit from game to game at the moment, so I will see - but we have quite a strong squad available."
