Arsenal receive triple injury boost ahead of Villarreal clash

Mikel Arteta confirms triple injury boost for Arsenal

Arsenal have received a triple injury boost ahead of the Europa League clash against Villarreal on Thursday night.

The Gunners will make the trip to El Madrigal for the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie tomorrow.

Ahead of the game, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has confirmed a triple fitness boost with three key players back in training.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is available after recovering from malaria while Alexandre Lacazette has overcome a hamstring problem.

Kieran Tierney suffered a knee ligament injury against Liverpool earlier this month, but he has made a quick recovery.

Aside from the trio, David Luiz also returned to training earlier this week after a brief absence due to a knee surgery.

Arteta will have a full squad to choose from for tomorrow's crunch European meeting against the Yellow Submarines.

The club's European prospects for next season hinge on winning the Europa League after another dismal league campaign.

The Gunners are 10th in the league standings with just 46 points on the board.
