Arsene Wenger is hopeful both Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere will be fit to face Tottenham despite being injured against Fenerbahce.
The Gunners booked their place in the group stages of the Champions League as they defeated the Turkish side 2-0 to go through 5-0 on aggregate, but the win came at a cost.
Wenger confirmed after the game that Lukas Podolski is facing three weeks on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury, while Ramsey, who scored both goals, and Wilshere also sustained injuries in a bruising encounter.
However Wenger is hopeful neither injury is serious and expects them both to be fit for the big North London derby on Sunday.
"I don't know how bad Ramsey is," Wenger revealed. "I don't know how Wilshere responds. We have to check that tomorrow morning. The two tackles on Wilshere were disappointing, but he looks all right.
"Jack should be all right for Sunday. I'm hopeful on Aaron as well. I took him off with three or four minutes to go, but I don't know how bad it is. He wanted to stay on."
