Adnan Januzaj and Jason Denayer are back training for Sunderland.
The on-loan Manchester United winger has been out injured with ankle ligament damage but his return to fitness is a boost for the Black Cats.
He has an outside chance of being involved in the squad for the visit of Arsenal.
Manager David Moyes revealed the news at his pre-match press conference.
Jason Denayer, who has been out with an adductor injury, is also back training but the Arsenal game is likely to come too soon for the on-loan Manchester City man.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Moyes said: "Adnan Januzaj trained yesterday and will come in today so if we think he's right we may add him to the squad.
"Jason Denayer trained as well but it may come too soon for him."
