"Eduardo is doing very well but is not close to play," Wenger told arsenal.com. "Eduardo will be OK before Christmas, of course, but Rosicky is a little bit behind him.
"I monitor Rosicky's progress very closely but at the moment it is very difficult to put a date on his comeback. We are not pessimistic about the future of his career but we still need more patience. If he comes back before Christmas we have done very well but I think we can achieve that, that in December he can play again."
