Arsenal midfielder Alex Song could return for the clash against Manchester City on Saturday, but the rest of the injured Gunners are out.
The Cameroon international faces a fitness test on Friday after missing the last three games with an inflamed cartilage.
Russian playmaker Andrey Arshavin also hoped to return from his calf injury in the game, but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has ruled this out.
The Arsenal boss also says the injured Manuel Almunia, Denilson and William Gallas will be missing as well.
Wenger told Arsenal TV Online on Thursday: "Maybe Song (could be off the injury list). He has a test tomorrow and we'll see. He is a question mark.
"Apart from that, nobody is back. Andrey Arshavin is out. Everyone else - Gallas, Almunia, Denilson - is still out too."
On a more positive note, Kieran Gibbs and Johan Djourou are approaching fitness after long-term injuries, although Wenger believes only Djourou could feature again this season.
He said: "Djourou has a little chance. But Gibbs will be very short."
