Pictures: 26-year-old star joins Arsenal squad in training on Saturday ahead of Southampton

Arsene Wenger’s men are finishing up their preparations for the clash with Southampton at home in the Premier League on Sunday.

Arsenal brought an end to their poor run of form in the league during March by thrashing Watford 3-0 at home ahead of the international break.

And as business resumed last Sunday, the Gunners managed to beat Stoke City 3-0 at the Emirates stadium, courtesy of a brace from Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and a late penalty kick from Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal have closed the gap on London rivals Chelsea after the Blues’ rare defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

One man who will be looking to feature in the clash against Southampton is Alexandre Lacazette, a player still making his way back after recovering from a knee injury.

The 26-year-old scored from a late penalty-kick against Stoke City last weekend before finding the net twice on Thursday in the 4-1 victory over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League.

Here were a few snapshots as Lacazette joined the rest of the squad in training….
