The club's title hopes have been bolstered with the news that midfielder Tomas Rosicky will be available for tomorrow's visit of Everton. The Czech Republic midfielder missed last weekend's FA Cup victory over West Ham United with a groin injury but manager Arsène Wenger expects to welcome him back.

"He has little problems," Wenger said of Rosicky. "But the scan always comes back reassuring. I believe that is down to the fact that he has not played for such a long time and that his body has to re-adapt again. Now he is back and completely fit."

Midfielder Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) remains out, along with the long-term absentees Gaël Clichy and Robin van Persie.
