Arsenal receive injury boost ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Martinelli fit to face Crystal Palace

Arsenal have received an injury boost ahead of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace tonight.



The north London giants are unbeaten in their last four league games with three wins and one draw.

Ahead of tonight's London derby, they have been handed a boost with Gabriel Martinelli back in training.

The Brazilian picked up a minor injury this month, and Mikel Arteta confirmed the same earlier this week.

However, it appears that he has made a quick recovery and was present in the full training session yesterday.

Martinelli started the first two league games of the campaign, but he has since been an unused substitute.

Arteta has no plans of loaning him out at the beginning of the year despite the speculation of player unrest.

Martinelli is attracting interest from multiple Bundesliga clubs, but Arteta still considers him as part of his plans.

The 20-year-old is likely to feature on the bench when the Gunners take on the Eagles at the Emirates Stadium tonight.
