Tomas Rosicky has admitted he is a doubt to play against Huddersfield after his recent bout of sickness.
The Arsenal midfielder has been out for almost a fortnight during which he has been unable to do anything.
But after making his recovery, his involvement in the game will now depend if he is deemed fit enough by boss Arsene Wenger.
"I feel fine again but it's hard to tell whether I will be able to start in a competitive fixture or not," he told his official website.
"I woke up with a bad illness and basically stayed in bed since then. I had to stay in bed for a week and couldn't do anything else, I was feeling very weak.
"The only activity I did during that time was watching some sports games on telly - football and ice-hockey, I was in no mood for anything else."
Arsenal's midweek victory over Ipswich means they are now in the Carling Cup final and Rosicky is targeting success in all four competitions this term.
And with key players like Robin van Persie coming back from injury and the vast talent pool available to Wenger, he feels their strength in depth could be the key.
He added: "At the end of autumn I said that it might be our advantage to have so many players involved in our fixtures.
"With the season getting to a more advanced stage, these words have been turning to become justified.
"I believe that it will be our advantage and that we will still be able to get some big wins.
"If we had been closer to the top spot in the Premier League it would have been better, but even so, we are happy to still be in all cup competitions.
"The spring promises to be very interesting yet."
