Arsenal's injury concerns have been eased ahead of their Champions League qualifier against Fenerbahce on Wednesday night.

The Gunners endured a torrid opening weekend to the season as they succumbed to a 3-1 home defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, a result that was exacerbated by a string of injuries that threatened to cause havoc to Arsene Wenger's European preparations.

Bacary Sagna fell awkwardly during Saturday's clash at the Emirates while Kieran Gibbs suffered a cut above his eye. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered the worst knock of the afternoon and was forced to leave The Emirates on crutches with early reports suggesting the 20-year-old could face six months on the side lines with a knee injury.

Arsenal have been given some respite however with reports suggesting both Kieran Gibbs and Bacary Sagna took part in training on Tuesday morning.

The Gunners are still without the services of Mikel Arteta who was ruled out for six weeks before the new Premier League campaign got underway, while Nacho Monreal and Thomas Vermaelen are not expected to return to training until next month.

Wenger's side will look to overcome a potentially tricky away tie against Fenerbahce on Wednesday, before welcoming the Turkish giants back to the Emirates next week.

Carl Jenkinson, perhaps one of the only Arsenal defenders definitely to be in contention for tomorrow's game along with Per Mertesacker, was part of a defence dissected by Aston Villa at the weekend but remains confident the club will be able to dust themselves off after their first opening day defeat in 13 years.

"We're all incredibly disappointed and it's a game that we should have won and we need to be winning," Jenkinson told Arsenal's official website.

"We've got to bounce back because we've got a massive game in midweek.

"We want to be playing in the Champions League. It's the pinnacle of football and it's where this club belongs so we've got to get our heads straight and recover from this result.

"I'm confident we'll do that because we've got a lot of characters in the dressing room."
