Arsenal fans across the world will be shattered to know that Jan Oblak has recovered from the calf injury that kept him out of action at the weekend and will be fit to start against the Gunners on Thursday night.
Oblak had an outstanding match at the Grove in the first leg but an ‘overloaded calf’ kept him out of Atletico’s game at Alves, which they won 1-0.
He also missed the training session prior to the game, however reports in Spain believe he will be perfectly fine to start against Arsenal.

xG map for Arsenal – Atletico Madrid.
There are many takes available, but the most straightforward and statistically correct is that Jan Oblak is a dimension-travelling space octopod whose true form was glimpsed in the London night. pic.twitter.com/31tJ8Xg2id

Filipe Luis has also returned to training however Juanfran is still absent with a muscle injury, the only absentee from Atletico’s training session on Tuesday.
Sime Vrsaljko will be suspended for the game after his red card in the first leg.
