Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that striker Olivier Giroud will not feature this weekend against Swansea City.
The Frenchman joins Aaron Ramsey on the sidelines who is also yet to recover from injury.
Midfielders Mesut Ozil and Francis Coquelin will be in the squad.
"[Olivier] Giroud will not be available for Saturday and Aaron Ramsey will not be available," Wenger said.
"Giroud will be a little bit the same because he has been out now, he has still not been on the pitches. I think he starts to have a jog again today for the first time so he has been interrupted a lot in his preparation. We have to build his fitness up again.
"Francis Coquelin is back available and apparently we have good news. I have not seen everybody coming back from international games but we have quite good news.
"He [Mesut Ozil] told us he's completely fit. We'll see that today, if we have no bad news today. I see him later. I expect him to be available, especially because he's only played one half, so he doesn't need to be rested on Saturday.
"[Aaron Ramsey?] Next week will come too early. It's a bit of a vicious circle. He had a little setback, so we rested him.
"The longer that lasts, the more time you have to dedicate to build up his fitness again because he has been out for four weeks. Then you have to basically create a new three-week preparation to get him up to the level he was at before the injury.
"It's more the time it takes to rebuild his fitness. We have decided that we'll give him a complete pre-season, even if he misses one or two more games."
