Premier League leaders Arsenal expect Mesut Ozil to have recovered from a knee injury in time to face Norwich on Saturday.
Midfielder Santi Cazorla could also return for the first time since September following an ankle injury, while full-back Bacary Sagna (hamstring) may also be involved.
Forward Theo Walcott (abdominal), Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) are all still recovering.
Forward Anthony Pilkington is doubtful as Norwich travel to Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal.
Pilkington made an early return from international duty with the Republic of Ireland due to a hamstring injury, but boss Chris Hughton is optimistic he will be fit.
Hughton will assess a number of other knocks ahead of the trip to the Emirates Stadium.
