Arsène Wenger continues to be frustrated by Arsenal’s injury problems ahead of the trip to Liverpool but says Abou Diaby could return for Sunday’s game.

The Frenchman was relieved not to add any new names to the long list of players unavailable after the Champions League trip to Olympiacos.

In addition to that the Arsenal manager was pleased to see Theo Walcott come through Wednesday night’s match unscathed after injury concerns had plagued the striker’s start to the season.

“The good news from the game in Greece is that Theo has come through 90 minutes,” said Wenger at Friday’s press conference. “We have no new injuries from Wednesday night.”

However the Gunners are still without a string of first-team stars as they prepare to take on Liverpool.

“The bad news is that Eboue and Rosicky were injured from the Stoke game and will not be available for Sunday,” explained the manager.

“All those with long-term injuries are still out. The only one who could be back in the squad is Diaby. I will know on Saturday.”

Arsenal’s injury problems have been a major concern for Wenger recently, and a lack of available strikers forced him to play Andrey Arshavin up front in the 2-0 win over Stoke at the weekend.

“At the same time we had Van Persie, Bendtner, Eduardo, Diaby and Walcott out,” said the Frenchman.

“They are all offensive players but it looks a bit better now.”
