Arsenal have welcomed back four players to training – Olivier Giroud, Hector Bellerin, Per Mertesacker and Chuba Akpom.

From that quad, Olivier Giroud will be included in the matchday squad for the game against FC Basel on Tuesday night.

Chuba’s return is great news as back injuries such as the one he was suffering from can prove to be lengthy.

Some of the players took to Twitter to express their delight at being back out on the training pitch:

As you can see from these photos, this trio are currently training away from the main group of players. It is unlikely that we will see them involved in first team action for a few weeks yet.
Hector should be the first to return.
