Picture: Good news for Emery as 29-year-old returns to Arsenal training ahead of Borisov trip

The Gunners have been given better news on the injury front ahead of the clash with BATE Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Arsenal were missing a few key players last Saturday as they travelled to Huddersfield Town in what was a vital game in the Premier League.

The Gunners were able to beat the relegation-battling side 2-1, courtesy of goals from Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette to move up to fifth place in the table.

However, not in action on Saturday was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the team’s leading goalscorer so far this season.

The 29-year-old’s absence – due to an illness – was a concern for most fans, with Arsenal facing a busy run of fixtures in the month of February.

But ahead of the clash with BATE Borisov in the Europa League, Aubameyang has given Unai Emery a major boost after managing to return to training with the first team squad.
