Although Emmanuel Adebayor is out for three weeks with a hamstring strain picked up at White Hart Lane last Sunday, Arsenal's attacking options should look far stronger come the next league game, when Sunderland visit the Emirates on Saturday week.

Striker Eduardo - on the bench at Tottenham after 12 months out with a fractured left fibula and dislocated ankle - is now fully fit while Arshavin should also be close to making his Arsenal bow.

In addition, England winger Theo Walcott is within touching distance of a return following three months out with a dislocated shoulder.

"Eduardo has been working really hard and everyone is just really happy that he is back. Hopefully he can play, the sooner the better," added van Persie.

"Arshavin has looked good in training - they both have - so there is more to come. I really believe in their qualities.
