The former Dortmund man is yet to return to full training but it’s good to see him back in action at London Colney.
Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are both back in full training while Granit Xhaka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are being assessed ahead of the match.
It’s good to see so many players returning from injury for the Gunners. The busy festive period always causes fitness problems with the players but hopefully, that has been put behind them.
