Matt Smith and Catalin Cirjan train with Arsenal first-team ahead of Manchester United clash

Matt Smith and Catalin Cirjan were involved in the Arsenal first-team’s final training session before their game away to Manchester United.

21-year-old midfielder Smith was on the bench against Aston Villa and is likely to receive further callups to the squad this season.

Cirjan, meanwhile, is looking to re-establish himself in the U21 side after over a year out injured. The Romanian youngster has excellent technical ability.

Centre-back Zane Monlouis was involved in first-team training on Friday.



  1. I think Smith and Hein will make the bench on Thursday along with 1 more midfielder, most likely Henry-Francis or Cirjan.

    Obviously any injuries picked up today might change things, but i expect to see this team on Thursday.
