Arsenal star returns from injury ahead of Molde clash


David Luiz news

David Luiz returns to full training

Arsenal defender David Luiz has returned to full training ahead of Thursday's Europa League clash against Molde at the Emirates Stadium.

The Brazil international picked up a thigh problem during the 1-0 defeat at Leicester City and subsequently missed the games against Dundalk and Manchester United.

Earlier last month, Arteta had indicated that Luiz could be out of action for a few weeks, but the centre-back has made a quick recovery and is in contention for tomorrow's game.

Aside from Luiz, Calum Chambers has also joined first-team training. The England international has been out of action since December last year when he suffered a serious knee injury against Chelsea.

He has now joined his teammates in full training ahead of Thursday's game. He could make his first appearance of the campaign following the November international break.

Arsenal have picked up back-to-back wins in the Europa League group stage and they are firm favourites to beat Molde. A number of fringe players are expected to feature.
