Skipper Ron Vlaar remains a doubt with calf-injury while Libor Kozak and Christian Benteke are long-term casualties and are one or two months away from returning to training.
Mathieu Debuchy awkwardly twisted his ankle in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City and the extent of his injury will be revealed this weekend. The Frenchman is ruled out nonetheless alongside his compatriots Olivier Giroud (foot) and Yaya Sanogo (hamstring). Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry remain sidelined with knee injuries while Nacho Monreal is also out unavailable due to back injury.
