Eduardo close to Arsenal comeback

Arsenal striker Eduardo should be back playing competitive football in three weeks, says manager Arsene Wenger.

The Croatian international suffered horrific leg and ankle injuries at Birmingham on 23 February and there were fears for his career.

But having undergone surgery the same day he was injured, the player has been working hard on his fitness ever since.

The next round of the Carling Cup is just under three weeks away, when Arsenal are at home to Wigan.

But the outlook for midfielder Tomas Rosicky is not quite as positive.

The Czech international, who has not played since January because of a hamstring injury, will not return until after Christmas.
