Danny Welbeck has finally returned to first-team training after being sidelined with a knee injury for the past nine months.
The news comes as a boost to Arsenal who will also welcome back Francis Coquelin this weekend in the FA Cup against Burnley.
Welbeck picked up the knee injury against Chelsea last April and was initially only expected to be out shot-term. The injury, however, proved difficult to heal and he was forced to undergo surgery at the start of this season.
With Arsenal still well placed in the title race, the return of talented players who will be fresh and well rested could not come at a better time for the club as they look to secure their first league title since 2004.
Of course, we can’t expect Welbeck to come straight back into the side, but it’s great news nonetheless.
All we have to hope for, really, is that the legs don’t fall off another five players in the meantime.
