Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is back in training ahead of the game against Sheffield United. The club have said they have yet to make a decision over his participation tomorrow night but from the video shared by the Gunners’ official Twitter account, he looks raring to go:
Returning. Retuning. Working hard.

Lacazette has been out since the beginning of September with an ankle injury. Having been on the sidelines for the best part of seven weeks, it may be too much to ask for him to play the full 90 minutes on Monday.
However, the 28-year-old has been training for a number of days, and his importance to the team may lead to manager Unai Emery picking him from the start. We won’t have to wait long to find out.
