Arsenal have reported that six key players have returned to full training ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with West Ham (via Arsenal.com).
It’s clear that the Gunners have suffered more than their fair share of injury problems in recent weeks but it seems as if things could soon change.
Today, the club has announced that six key players have returned to full training in a major boost for head coach Unai Emery.
The list includes short-term layoffs like Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin, and Shkodran Mustafi as well as some longer injuries.
Dinos Mavropanos has returned to training, as has Mesut Ozil who has missed the last few weeks with a reported back injury.

The club also confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to return to full training later this week.
It’s great news for the Gunners. The return of Hector Bellerin is the biggest boost of all but Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal will all be highly useful.
