Youngsters Alex Iwobi, Chris Willock and Kaylen Hinds trained with the Arsenal first-team squad at London Colney this morning ahead of tomorrow’s game against Swansea City.
Willock and Hinds are just back from the U17 World Cup, where they represented England, whilst Iwobi, who made his senior Arsenal debut on Tuesday, is likely to be on the bench tomorrow given the first-team’s injury problems.
Young defender Julio Pleguezuelo, who was surprisingly left out of the squad to face Sheffield Wednesday, also trained along with midfielder Ben Sheaf, who made the bench at Hillsborough.
Eight senior players are currently out injured, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, David Ospina, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky all currently sidelined.
Subs: Macey, Debuchy, Gabriel, Chambers, Gibbs, Flamini, Iwobi.
