Reiss Nelson recently returned from his knee ligament injury, picked up during the Standard Liege match in October. The young winger started against Tottenham Hotspur u23s on Friday, playing the first 45 minutes of a 3-1 win.

It seems there weren’t any setbacks for the player, as he’s returned to first-team training ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League match against Vitoria. Check out this link if you’re interested in placing a bet on the clash.

Emile Smith Rowe was also back in first-team training on Tuesday. The young midfielder has spent the early part of the season slowly getting back to full fitness after a long-term groin injury from last year and a concussion sustained against Nottingham Forest in September.

Though the 19-year-old had featured to good effect against Vitoria on October 24th, he then dropped back down to the u23s for their match on Friday to keep himself ticking over. He completed 90 minutes without any problems.

It’s good to have the pair fit and available again, because they can certainly add a lot to Unai Emery’s squad options.
