Arsenal captain Thierry Henry is a doubt for next week’s Champions League tie against PSV Eindhoven, while Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky will definitely miss the match.
Arsenal are trailing 1-0 after the first leg in Eindhoven, and the loss of Henry in particular would be a significant blow.
“Tomas will be out for the PSV game and Thierry is a doubt,” Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told the club’s official website.
“We will try our best to get him fit, but at the moment it is impossible to say.
“The suspended players will be back for this game, so Adebayor and Toure will play. Maybe Abou Diaby will be back too.”
Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Ivorian defenders Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Eboue are suspended for Saturday’s Premiership clash with Reading, following their role in last Sunday’s brawl at the Carling Cup final.
Midfielders Mathieu Flamini (foot) and Abou Diaby (ankle), along with defender Justin Hoyte (hamstring) and forward Robin van Persie (foot) are also unavailable on Saturday.
