Four injured Arsenal players should be back in training by the end of the week.
Jens Lehmann came back into full training on Thursday, while William Gallas, Tomas Rosicky and Alex Song should be in training on Friday.
However, none will be fit enough to feature in Arsenal's game against Sunderland on Sunday.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told the club's official website: "Lehmann came back into full training today.
"Gallas should be in full training tomorrow. Rosicky and Song as well.
"Physically they are all better. But all of them will be short to be considered for Sunday.
"The only one completely out though is Eduardo."
