Arsenal full-back Emmanuel Eboue says he hopes to recover from an ankle injury in time for the visit of Manchester United on Sunday.
Eboue's return would be a huge boost for Arsenal
The Ivory Coast defender's injury first flared up before Christmas and recurred during the FA Cup third round win over Liverpool on 6 January.
"I've been injured since the Portsmouth game and when I trained I still felt it a bit," he told the club website.
"But I hope to be back for Manchester United. I really, really want to play."
