Pictures: 22-year-old joins Arsenal squad training on Wednesday before Chelsea game

The Gunners are in the middle of their preparations ahead of the important trip to Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.

Arsenal enjoyed a fairly encouraging pre-season tour of Asia before the 2018/19 season kicked off last Sunday at the Emirates stadium.

However, Manchester City’s dominant display has left many fans questioning whether there is actually any reason to be upbeat about the Gunners this season after a 2-0 defeat.

Unai Emery will have to help his side regroup and produce a response when they visit Stamford Bridge for another big clash this weekend.

Another loss against Chelsea would surely create an early damage to any hopes of challenging for the Premier League title this season.

The clash with the Blues could see new signing Lucas Torreira return to the starting line-up after being left out last Sunday.

Here were a few pictures as the 22-year-old joined the rest of the Arsenal squad in training on Wednesday….
