Major boost for Emery as another Arsenal star returns to training before Bournemouth game
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has received another boost ahead of the clash with AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend.
Arsenal’s last game before the international break was against Wolves and had it not been for a late strike from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, that match would have ended in an embarrassing defeat to the newly promoted side.
Emery received some concerning news after the game as key striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang was forced to pull out of the squad for Gabon due to an injury.
But, much to the relief of the Arsenal boss, the 29-year-old has now returned to training with the first team ahead of the trip to Bournemouth in the Premier League.
Aubameyang’s quick recovery from injury will be a major boost for an Arsenal side who have failed to win any of their last three games in the league.
The Gunners are already dealing with a shortage of strikers following the injury which Danny Welbeck suffered recently against Sporting Lisbon.
