Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cut a determined figure in his first training session of the new season on Tuesday.
The midfielder spent much of the 2014/15 season sidelined with injury and by the time he was fit enough to be included in the first team again, the summer break was already upon him.
Fortunately, like Jack Wilshere, he seems eager to get back on the horse, build his strength and challenge for a place in that starting 11.
He took to his Instagram account to voice his excitement at being back on the training field.
