Ljungberg will be out for another month

It is sad to know that Arsenal squad could be without the talented Freddie Ljungberg for around another month because of his calf injury. Emmanuel Eboue and Julio Baptista also remain unavailable for Sunday's Premiership clash at Reading, but otherwise there are no new injury concerns following the midweek Champions League loss in Moscow.

In fact, coach Arsene Wenger admitted: "Freddie had a setback, and will be out for two or three more weeks."

In another information, defender Philippe Senderos and midfielder Mathieu Flamini return to the squad after working on their fitness with the reserves and left-back Gael Clichy is in contention for a start. However, Lauren (knee) and Abou Diaby (ankle) are some way from a return.

This will be Arsenal's list for the match against Reading: Lehmann, Almunia, Djourou, Gallas, Clichy, Toure, Senderos, Hoyte, Hleb, Fabregas, Gilberto, Rosicky, Flamini, Song, van Persie, Walcott, Henry, Adebayor.
