Pictures: 28-year-old star joins Arsenal first team in training ahead of Red Star match on Thursday

Arsene Wenger’s men are wrapping up their preparations for Thursday night’s important clash with Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League.

Following the 2-1 defeat away to Watford over two weeks ago, the Gunners have responded to their critics by winning their last four games in all competitions.

Here were a few snapshots as the Chile international joined the rest of the first team at London Colney on Wednesday…..
