Injured Bergkamp forced out

Dennis Bergkamp has been ruled out for two weeks with a calf injury and misses tonight's match with West Bromwich Albion at Highbury.

Kanu, who replaced him at half-time in Saturday's 2-2 draw at West Ham is set for his first start of the season. The Brazilian Gilberto Silva is also available after his return from international duty and he has been named as a definite starter.

Thierry Henry, on the scoresheet in both of Arsenal's previous games, will be the man to watch as Arsenal aim to return to winning ways. Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg and Giovanni Van Bronckhorst remain on the long-term injured list, but the scoring form of Sylvain Wiltord, who hit Saturday's equaliser, is some compensation.

West Brom's weaknesses were exposed in their defeat by Leeds and their defending, criticised by their manager Gary Megson, is unlikely to have improved much although defender Darren Moore has made a quick recovery from a groin injury.

Tottenham hope to have Darren Anderton back in the squad after a knee injury for their visit to Charlton. The former England midfielder has yet to figure this season but could join Christian Ziege in the travelling party, the German having made his comeback from ankle trouble in Saturday's 1-0 win over Aston Villa.

Stephen Carr (hamstring), Ledley King (hip) and Gustavo Poyet (knee) are still out but the sparkling form of newcomer Jamie Redknapp, scorer of Saturday's winner, has eased the pain.

Charlton's summer signing Gary Rowett will be missing for about a month after straining a hamstring in Saturday's win at Bolton. Graham Stuart, meanwhile, is struggling with a knee injury.

Barry Hayles, who missed Fulham's opening two Premiership matches through suspension, returns to the squad for their Intertoto Cup final second leg against Bologna at Loftus Road.

Fulham, with no injury problem, will select from the same squad that secured a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Italy.
