Arsenal: Mohamed Elneny set to return to action
Arsene Wenger yesterday confirmed that Mohamed Elneny has returned to training and could be part of the squad to take on West Brom tomorrow.
“Elneny looked at the start a very bad ankle injury but he has recovered well and is keen to come back as quickly as possible.”
It is a welcome boost for Arsenal who are without Santi Cazorla already and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is struggling after picking up an injury in the FA Cup quarter-final.
Whether Elneny will play any part tomorrow remains to be seen but just having another option there is great news for Arsenal. It was a worrying sign when he posted this not too long ago.

Kieran Gibbs and Chamberlain both remain doubts for tomorrow. Wenger confirmed that Chamberlain will have a fitness test before travelling to West Brom.
If he does miss out then it could be a big loss. He has been one of the few bright spots for Arsenal in 2017.
