‘Makes You Smile’ ‘Good News’ – Fans On Social Media Delighted To See Pictures Of Arsenal Defender Back In Training

Arsenal centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos has been pictured back on the training pitch following an ankle injury.

The latest news from the medical department is that the Greek international is due to return to full fitness at the end of February.

However, supporters on Twitter are hopeful that Sokratis can come back into the fold earlier than expected to help shore up Unai Emery’s backline:

With Shkodran Mustafi struggling in the centre of defence, and Rob Holding out for the season, the Greek defender’s return to the first team cannot come soon enough for some Gunners fans.

Of course, the 30-year-old won’t cure all of Arsenal’s defensive problems but he was a mainstay for most of the London club’s 22 match unbeaten run earlier in the campaign.

Since Sokratis went off injured against Manchester United in the FA Cup defeat last month, the Gunners have conceded seven goals in their last three matches.
