Now that loads of players have returned to full fitness, the weekly fitness bulletin from the Arsenal medical team looks a little sparse.
Obviously, this is good news.
While Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding remain long-term absentees, it sounds as though Henrikh Mkhitaryan is making good progress in his recovery from a broken metatarsal in his right foot.
The Armenian, who suffered the injury in the Carabao Cup defeat to Sp*rs last month, won’t be ready in time to face Chelsea this weekend, however, he could be in contention to face former club Manchester United in the FA Cup when they visit the Emirates on Friday 25 January.
Obviously, being fit isn’t a guarantee of first team football, just ask Mesut Ozil, but he was getting regular minutes before he suffered the problem.
