Arsenal confirm triple injury boost ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt clash

Arsenal trio return to first-team training

Arsenal have confirmed that the trio of Kostas Mavropanos, Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin have returned to full training ahead of the forthcoming Europa League clash against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The trio have been going through an individual training programme away from the first-team squad this season, but they are now deemed fit to work with their teammates.

Still, it is unclear whether manager Unai Emery will utilise the services of the trio against Frankfurt, given they are bound to lack match sharpness after an extended time on the sidelines.

The Gunners go into the Europa League opener against Frankfurt with no wins in the past three games. They held a a 2-0 lead at the interval against Watford last weekend but a poor second half display contributed towards a disappointing 2-2 draw.

Alexandre Lacazette remains the only confirmed absentee for the forthcoming European game with the Frenchman sidelined until October with a minor ankle problem picked up during pre-season.
