Arsenal are hopeful Francis Coquelin will return from a knee injury for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Olympiakos, but there is concern over Mathieu Flamini after he picked up a hamstring problem.
Coquelin was ruled out of the Gunners' 5-2 victory at Leicester on Saturday while Flamini, who starred in their Capital One Cup win over Tottenham last week, was substituted after after 21 minutes at the King Power Stadium.
Manager Arsene Wenger said: "Coquelin could be available for Tuesday - he is the only one that could come back in.
"[On Saturday] we lost Mathieu Flamini - it's his hamstring - but Gabriel is not suspended."
Ahead of Arsenal's win in the Midlands, which lifted them to fourth in the Premier League, Wenger said of Coquelin: "He is progressing well.
"He had a scan on Thursday and the evolution is quite positive. He might start practice [on Sunday].
"He has a little chance for Tuesday, and a bigger chance for Manchester United. It is very difficult to be definite."
Arsenal are still without midfielder Jack Wilshere, who has had an operation on a hairline fracture in his left fibula, while forward Danny Welbeck and Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky are also both still sidelined with knee injuries.
