Good news on the injury front for Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta has been handed a major boost on the injury front with the Spanish manager now having almost all his first-team players fit.

The Gunners had suffered a minor injury crisis just before their winter break in Dubai but Arteta still went for the training camp with all his players except Calum Chambers who is a long term injury absentee.

Ahead of their next game against Newcastle United, the Spanish manager would be relieved that most of his players are fit and ready to fight for a place in the starting XI.

Bukayo Saka and Sead Kolasinac had entered the winter break with injuries, but both of them are fit to play again helping the team get out of a minor left-back injury crisis.

Reiss Nelson who has been struggling with a hamstring injury is also fit and ready to play a part in the match against the Magpies.

Kieran Tierney has also resumed light training and the Scottish fullback is edging closer to joining the first team for full training sections.

Cedric Soares is also close to being fit for selection and the Gunners believe that he can join their first team training later this month.

Pablo Mari who also joined the Gunners last month was with his new teammates in Dubai and he is set to start his first Arsenal game against Olympiacos next week.
