Nelson back in Arsenal training

Arsenal have been handed an injury boost with Reiss Nelson back in full training following his short-term hamstring injury.

The Gunners graduate suffered the setback in the winter friendly against Juventus, but he is now close to making his comeback.

Nelson was spotted working with his teammates in today's session and he could make his return to the matchday squad on Saturday afternoon.

The north London giants are currently top of the standings with 50 points, five ahead of Manchester City, who have played one game more.

They have a small advantage to carry forward during the back end of the season, but need to continue the good form to sustain their spot.

The club will be travelling to Goodison Park for Saturday's game against Everton. It won't be straightforward for the Gunners in any form.

The Toffees have beaten them in three of the previous four top-flight meetings including a 2-1 comeback win at the stadium last term.
