Robbie Keane is unlikely to feature against Arsenal on Saturday after sustaining a knee injury against Wigan last weekend.The only long-term absentee now is Lee Young-Pyo (knee), while Anthony Gardner and Benoit Assou-Ekotto have returned to training but will not be considered. Tom Huddlestone, Mido and Ledley King are all fit and Paul Stalteri is rated 50-50.
"Robbie Keane has an inflammation of the knee he suffered against Wigan and I don't think there is a chance of him being in the squad," reported Martin Jol this afternoon. "Lee Young-Pyo has had knee surgery and will be out for at least three months, while Anthony Gardner is still out with his hairline fracture - he is training and I feel he needs another week before coming back.
"Benoit Assou-Ekotto is doing well and trained with us this morning, but is still not 100 per cent and is unlikely to be ready for Saturday. Tom Huddlestone is back in full training and is available for selection, as is Mido, with Paul Stalteri 50-50.
"Ledley King is fine, he had a good rest after the Sevilla game and will be in the team.
