Emirates hero could return for White Hart Lane crunch match.
Arsenal defender Johan Djourou will be out of action for four weeks after dislocating his shoulder in the 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Manchester United.
The 24-year-old underwent an exploratory operation and the club confirmed on their website that he will not need reconstructive surgery.
The Swiss international will now begin a period of rehabilitation on the shoulder before returning to training in around a month.
It was originally feared Djourou would miss the rest of the season before the Swiss FA reported the centre-back could be back in two weeks.
Djourou now faces a race to be fit for the North London derby with Tottenham but is likely to miss the league games against Blackburn, Blackpool and Liverpool.
