Pictures: 29-year-old star joins Arsenal squad training ahead of Sporting clash

The Gunners are now finishing up their preparations ahead of the clash with Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League on Thursday night. 

Arsenal have put together a fantastic run ever since they opened the new campaign with back-to-back defeats which came against Manchester City and Chelsea in the Premier League.

The Gunners have now managed to win their last ten games in all competitions, climbing from 15th to 4th in the Premier League table over the past couple of months as a result.
