Picture: Massive boost for Arsenal ahead of Fulham as key star returns
The Gunners have been handed a major boost ahead of the clash with Fulham in the Premier League on Tuesday afternoon.
Unai Emery has certainly not had it easy at the Emirates stadium ever since he was announced as the man to replace Arsene Wenger earlier this year.
The new Arsenal boss has still managed to keep his side in the race for a top four finish with 18 games now left in the league campaign.
The Gunners’ inability to keep hold of a spot in the top four has been partly due to the fact that injury blows have hit several key players in the squad.
One of the players who has recently been spending time on the sidelines is Hector Bellerin, with Stephan Lichtsteiner taking over his role at right back for the time being.
Much to the delight of Emery and most Arsenal fans though, Bellerin has now returned to training ahead of the clash with Fulham.
The Spanish defender was sorely missed at right back by the Gunners as Lichtsteiner was exposed on several occasions.
No matter what. So happy to be back out on the grass!! pic.twitter.com/YXUKIC6zX0
