U21 players Semi Ajayi, Kristoffer Olsson, Isaac Hayden and Hector Bellerin trained with the first-team this morning as Arsene Wenger’s side concluded their preparations for tomorrow’s trip to face Everton in the Premier League.
Gedion Zelalem was also involved, whilst Aaron Ramsey and Nacho Monreal, who have made full recoveries from injury, also participated and are likely to be in the squad tomorrow. However, Kieran Gibbs and Serge Gnabry are doubtful having sustained minor problems. Nicklas Bendtner wasn’t present.
Abou Diaby is back training individually, but is not yet fit enough to join in with the main group, whilst Laurent Koscielny could return for next week’s FA Cup Semi-Final against Wigan Athletic. Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Mesut Ozil and Ryo are all still sidelined.
Players involved in training today:
Szczesny, Fabianski, Viviano, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Rosicky, Flamini, Arteta, Cazorla, Giroud, Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain,
Ramsey, Kallstrom, Sanogo, Monreal, Jenkinson, Zelalem, Bellerin, Olsson, Ajayi, Hayden.
