Robbie Keane, Christian Ziege, Gus Poyet and Kazu Toda will miss the clash against Chelsea but all have returned to training.
Boss Glenn hoddle explained this morning: "Robbie is training again, doing ball work but it might still be a couple of weeks. It's a similar situation with Kazu.
"Gus has been training and that's positive news for us but he needs a game. Christian is also training and I hope, if everything goes well, that he might be able to play for the reserves on Monday.
"He's had a good week's training and if we think Monday is too quick, we'll arrange a behind-closed-doors game for him."
As of this morning, Glenn had no reported injuries from players on international duty.
Four players look likely to be missing at Stamford Bridge on Saturday - but it's good news on all of them.
