Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that attacking midfielder Alexis Sanchez will be back from injury before the end of the year.
The Chilean suffered the injury during the 1-1 draw at Norwich City at the end of last month.
But he will be a very important element for Arsenal during the busy Christmas period.
"We came back Thursday morning, so we will see the players today. We have no injuries after the game," Wenger told reporters.
"[Alexis Sanchez and Mikel Arteta are] short-term injuries, neither will be available for Sunday. No Arteta and no Alexis - who is the shortest one. The others will be [available] after Christmas.
"If you ask me if he [Jack Wilshere] will be fit before the end of December, no chance.
"He [Tomas Rosicky] is quite positive. He is running outside but not ready yet. End of January."
