Arsenal welcomed Alexandre Lacazette back into full training ahead of the game at Bramall Lane on Monday night as they head north with just one injured player out of action.
While it’s not clear yet if he will be involved in the game against Sheffield United on Monday night, the fact that he is back in training is nothing but a positive.
Speaking to the media, Unai Emery said, “Thursday is Lacazette’s first training back with us,”
“He finished it well and he’s feeling well with his injuries. [Friday] we will be training again and he will be with us. We will decide.
“The most important thing is that first he is training, then secondly it’s whether he can be with us and it depends how he can feel in the next days training with us, whether his ankle is not giving him any more problems.
“It’s positive for us that he’s started training and that he’s a possibility for Monday. I don’t know whether he’s ready for 90 minutes or on the bench. We’ll decide that over the next days, but it’s very important for him to come back to training with us.”
Emery also hinted that Kieran Tierney could get his first Premier League start of the season, Meut Ozil might be involved, Emile Smith Rowe is available, but Reiss Nelson is likely to be out until next month.
