The Arsenal football club's defenders William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre are likely to be out of action for three weeks because of injury.

Former captain Gallas has a hamstring problem while fellow French international Silvestre has a thigh injury.

Manager Arsene Wenger will have midfielder Denilson and defender Kolo Toure back from injury for the weekend's Premier League home match against Bolton Wanderers.

Arsenal are fifth on the table, 10 points behind leaders Liverpool.
