Arsenal Handed Major Double Injury Boost Ahead Of Liverpool Showdown

By on March 1, 2017

Arsenal have received a huge double injury boost with Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey returning to full training today ahead of this weekend’s showdown with Liverpool, according to the Daily Mail.

Koscielny was forced to miss Arsenal’s FA Cup win at Sutton United last month after sustaining a hamstring injury during the disappointing Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.

The French defender initially picked up the problem during the first half at the Allianz Arena and after trying to carry on, he was eventually forced off shortly after the break which instigated Arsenal’s humiliating collapse that saw them conceded three times in ten minutes to lose 5-1.

There were fears that Koscielny may be facing several weeks on the sidelines but the 31-year-old has made a swift recovery and the Daily Mail claim he was back in full training at London Colney this afternoon.

As long as Koscielny doesn’t suffer any setbacks over the coming days, he should be in contention to start at Anfield on Saturday which will be a huge boost to Arsenal as we saw in Munich how important he is to their team.

Aaron Ramsey

There is further positive news for the north Londoners as the newspaper says that Ramsey was also back in training today after overcoming a calf injury.

Ramsey hasn’t featured in Arsenal’s last four games in all competitions after suffering the injury during the defeat to Watford in late January but the midfielder could be back in the squad this weekend.

The Welsh international’s return to fitness comes as a good time for the Gunners as Mohamed Elneny is out with an ankle injury while Santi Cazorla is out for the season with a chronic Achilles problem.

Arsenal head to Merseyside sitting just one point above Liverpool in fourth position in the table so the result of Saturday night’s game will be pivotal in both clubs chances of finishing in the top four.
