‘Good To Hear’ ‘The Boss Is Back’ – Arsenal Fans On Social Media Delighted With Injury Boost Ahead Of City Clash

Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has returned to full training and should be fit to face Manchester City on Sunday.

The centre-back was caught in the face by Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku during the FA Cup defeat a week ago.

It was thought that Koscielny may have suffered a broken jaw but it turned out to be just bruising. He wasn’t, though, able to recover in time for the 2-1 win over Cardiff on Tuesday.

Fans on Twitter are glad to see the 33-year-old back in contention to face City:

However, not all supporters were happy:

In terms of other injury news, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are being assessed ahead of the match at the Etihad.

The Armenian hasn’t featured since the League Cup defeat to Tottenham in December due to a broken metatarsal.

Maitland-Niles, meanwhile, did not feature against Cardiff after sustaining a knee injury during the loss to United. Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding (both knee), Danny Welbeck and Sokratis (ankle) remain out for the long term.
