Of the inuured players, Dennis Bergkamp could well be fit to return. He says: "Despite what you might have read in the press, I haven't been to hospital for tests on my ribs, but I can confirm that I was X-rayed after the Tottenham game as a precaution. Thankfully, my ribs are okay and no serious damage has been done, although they are still pretty sore around the front. I'm going to miss a couple of training sessions but all being well they should have recovered in a matter of days, which means that I may be in contention to play at the weekend against Southampton."
Freddie will miss the Sweden - Czech Republic game due to a knee injury picked up on Saturday in a clash with Ledlegs King, but again he could be available for the weekend.
Gilberto will be travelling to South Korea (!) with the Brazilian squad for a friendly, so in all probability he'll be completely knackered and in need of rest this weekend.
We await updates on injuries to Martin Keown and Ray Parlour from the club.
