Important duo are back in training ahead of Napoli clash…


Arsenal duo Laurent Koscielny and Granit Xhaka are back in training ahead of our Europa League quarter-final tie against Napoli on Thursday.

The two have been nursing leg and groin injuries respectively, and their absence from the team was keenly felt as we succumbed to yet another away defeat at Everton on Sunday.

Fans were waiting on news regarding the aforementioned duo and it seems that they’ll be back in contention for the crucial first-leg tie at the Emirates Stadium.

The first-leg in this tie is specifically important given our horrendous away record this season, which is even more pertinent in this competition.

We’ve lost the away leg in the previous two rounds and needed a big home game to reverse the deficit, and we’re now at home for the first-leg against the Italian giants.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are very strong at home and were very unlucky to finish third in a Champions League group containing Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.

We’re going to need a monumental performance and, dare I say it, a significant lead to take to Naples given what we’ve produced on the road this season.

Check out the images above as Xhaka and Koscienly resume full training and throw their hat in the ring in terms of the Napoli game.
