Massive injury boost for Arsenal as key star completes recovery ahead of Burnley
Arsenal have been handed some great news on the injury front ahead of this weekend’s fixture in the Premier League.
After the impressive 4-0 victory at Swansea City, the Gunners are still clinging on to hopes of catching league leaders Chelsea who are eight points ahead.
One issue which keeps troubling Arsenal is injuries to key players with at least three first team regulars missing last Saturday’s affair.
However, things could get better this Sunday following the news that Hector Bellerin returned to full training with the rest of the squad on Monday morning.
The Spaniard, who has been a pivotal part of both Arsenal’s attack and defense since breaking into the first team two seasons ago, was deputized by Gabriel at right-back against Swansea.
Bellerin is now expected to be named in the team which faces Burnley in the Gunners next fixture and the same applies to Francis Coquelin who has also recovered from a hamstring problem.
The news of Arsenal’s fitness boost was broken by respected journalist Ben Dinnery.
Bellerin, Gibbs and Coquelin have all returned to full training. The trio will be available on Sunday *barring any setbacks. #AFC
