Arsenal manager Unai Emery has given an injury update ahead of the Premier League clash against West Ham at the London Stadium on Saturday.
Emery revealed that Mesut Ozil has returned to training after recovering from the knee injury that saw him ruled out of the past two league games against Liverpool and Fulham.
The Gunners boss also stated that Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin are back working with the team again but that Danny Welbeck and Holding are still out injured.
Meanwhile, Mkhitaryan and Mavropanos have also returned to training.
“This week they are working with us with quality, Mustafi, Monreal and Bellerin. Tomorrow we need to do the last training before the West Ham game,” he said at his pre-match press conference.
“This training session is important [to work out who can play]. Mesut Ozil is also training with us. We’ve got the same injuries with Welbeck and Holding.
“Mkhitaryan has been training with us and Mavropanos for the past 10 days, who can help us in the next matches and start playing with the under-23s. At the moment we are better than we were a week ago.”
Ozil has had his season disrupted by a series of injuries restricting him to just 13 Premier League appearances.
The playmaker of Turkish origin could however, make his return against the Hammers tomorrow for the London derby.
The North London based outfit head into the clash in 5th position in the league. West Ham meanwhile, are 10th on 28 points after 21 games.
