David Ospina and Mikel Arteta are expected back in full training on Friday, with the pair returning from injury ahead of the North London Derby this weekend, as reported by talkSPORT.
We’re plagued by injuries at the moment, with a host of stars out at the same time (via Arsenal.com). Arteta and Ospina aren’t exactly the two players we’ll be most pleased to see back and fit, but at this point we need all the depth we can muster.
The pair are only just returning to training, so are unlikely to be back immediately. They certainly won’t be ready in time for our clash with Tottenham this weekend, although it’s not like they would have been anywhere near the starting lineup anyway.
Hopefully the rest of our injury plagued squad will be joining them in full training soon, as we badly need to get the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott back in action.
Arsenal transfer news
We’re unlikely to see these important first-team stars back before the international break, but we need to make sure nobody else is added to the injury list.
