Injury Boost: Four Arsenal Stars Set for Tottenham Return

Injury Boost: Four Arsenal Stars Set for Tottenham Return

Arsenal are set to welcome back a number of stars as they head into the North-London derby which will take place on Sunday.

The Gunners were without ten of their first team players (the latest on the list being Laurent Koscielny) when they faced Bayern Munich on Wednesday night and all these ten were even said to be ruled out of their coming Premier League game but now, the story has changed as four out of them are set for returns.

Laurent Koscielny was not used in our last game not because he had a serious injury but for the fact that he had a minor one which Wenger did not want to become worse. He was left on the bench as an unused substitute and after the game, the manager said that he is a doubt for sunday.

Fortunately, he has been passed fit and will be available for selesction by the time Arsenal face Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Also likely to make the squad are Mikel Arteta and David Ospina. The former had been sidelined through an ankle injury for some weeks now but according to reports from the Telegraph, he has already resumed training on Wednesday.

Another boost for the Gunners is the return of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who will resume training today. However, he is not expected to be in the derby lineup.

The English international got injured early in the Sheffield Wednesday defeat and was given an after-the-international-break return date. Hector Bellerin and Aaron Ramsey will also return after the break.
