Picture: Massive boost for Arsenal as key star is now back in training ahead of Stoke clash

The Gunners have been handed more positive news ahead of the clash against Stoke City in the Premier League this weekend.

Arsenal returned to winning ways in the Premier League ahead of the international break as they thrashed Watford 3-0 at the Emirates stadium.

Wenger will certainly be hoping that sort of form continues this weekend against Stoke City but the fitness of his key players will have to be sorted out first.

Nacho Monreal has been in and out of the team in recent weeks due to niggling injury problems he has sustained, despite finding his best goal-scoring form.

Ahead of the clash with the Potters on Sunday, there have been doubts over the fitness of the Spanish full-back.

However, much to the delight of Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal faithful, the former Malaga star has managed to return to training with the rest of the first team squad this week.
