Arsenal have been boosted with the returns of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Mikel Arteta to full first team training as confirmed in pictures via the clubs official website.
Ozil missed Germany’s two matches during the international break after picking up an ankle knock late against Leicester City, and naturally doubts were raised over his potential involvement against the Citizen’s this Saturday.
It was also hoped Arteta would return after the twisted ankle he sustained against Besiktas in the first leg, and he too was pictured in full training. Koscielny, who suffered a nasty head clash in the Gunners last Premier League tie away to Leicester, has also recovered which provides a big boost for Arsenal’s backline.
No sign of Kieran Gibbs however. We will have to wait until Wenger’s press conference tomorrow for an update on the Englishman.
David Ospina also featured heavily in the photographs and will likely make the bench for the blockbuster tie at Emirates this weekend.
