The Gunners have confirmed another attacker has returned from injury ahead of the clash with Sheffield United in the Premier League on Monday.
For several years now, Arsenal have been troubled by injuries to players, an issue which hindered much of the team’s success under previous boss Arsene Wenger.
A month ago, the Gunners were hit with another injury blow as Emile Smith Rowe had to be stretchered off during the clash with Nottingham Forest in the League Cup.
The young attacker was involved in a nasty collision with Forest defender Jack Robinson and had to be taken off after being assessed by Arsenal’s medical staff for a lengthy period.
Smith Rowe had been displaying his bright potential until he was hit by that fitness blow which has seen him sit on the sidelines for the past couple of weeks.
However, ahead of the clash with Sheffield United on Monday evening, the Gunners have confirmed that the 19-year-old has managed to return to action – along with Alexandre Lacazette – and he is indeed available for the Premier League fixture.
“Fully recovered from collision against Nottingham Forest in Carabao Cup. Available for selection.” the Gunners’ medical staff said on the club’s official website
