Mikel Arteta could be back in time for the FA Cup with the Spaniard returning to training after his lengthy injury.
Speaking to the press, Arsene Wenger said about his captain “He is a possibility because he is back in full training.”
Arteta has been out of action since the end of November after picking up the problem against Borussia Dortmund.
Mathieu Debuchy could also be in line for a recall to the side after finally overcoming a hamstring injury but it would be incredibly hard on Hector Bellerin should he miss out to allow Debuchy to return to the side.
Danny Welbeck looks like he will miss out after suffering another setback but Abou Diaby could be available although given that he hasn’t featured since September and has been in full training since the start of May but not been seen near the senior side, it would be highly unlikely for the midfielder to be anywhere near the cup final squad.
