Arsenal have welcomed five players back from injury in a 4-0 win for their Under 21’s over Brentford, reports the club’s official website.
Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Debuchy, Abou Diaby, and Mathieu Flamini all started for the Gunners’ reserve side on Tuesday. Wilshere, Arteta, and Diaby were taken off at half time, while Debuchy and Flamini played an hour. The England international even scored in the rout. It is unknown how long it will take for any of these players will be fit enough for the first team.
This will be a major boost for Arsene Wenger, who will want all the help he can get as The North London club aims to qualify for the Champions League for the 18th season in a row. They are currently six points ahead of fifth placed Liverpool, and their match against the Merseyside club this weekend will have massive significance to the race for the Premier League top four.
