Fitness boost for Arsenal as stars return to training
When Arsene Wenger held his pre-game press conference he said he was not sure on the fitness of Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey after the international break.
However, both were pictured in training yesterday and look fit to start today’s game against Bournemouth.
Ramsey scored as Wales edged closer towards World Cup qualification and Sanchez played both games for Chile.
There was also a big boost as Alex Iwobi returned to training after injury.
Iwobi has played just 11 minutes for Arsenal this season and missed Nigeria’s internationals, but he was pictured in training alongside Ramsey and Sanchez.
It means that Arsenal are moving closer and closer towards full strength.
Wenger claimed that it is possible that Jack Wilshere could make the squad this weekend but it looks more likely that he would play in the upcoming Europa League and League Cup games.
Santi Cazorla is the main long term injury issue but he ran for the first time this week. He is not expected to be back until after Christmas.
