Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney has returned to training after missing the last six games with a leg injury.
The 23-year-old has been a standout player for the Gunners this season and his return to action is a huge boost ahead of a difficult period for the club.
Mikel Arteta’s team face Benfica in the Europa League on Thursday, before hosting Manchester City in the Premier League three days later.
They continue the second leg against Benfica in the middle of the week with a tough journey through the league to face Leicester City the following Sunday.

Tierney’s return is positive news for manager Mikel Arteta as he strives for success this season.
The Scottish international has not played since mid-January after suffering a leg strain and has been greatly missed in recent weeks.
Arteta has used Cedric Soares in the left-back role, but his presence on the team leaves Arsenal behind looking unbalanced.
The Gunners have won just twice during Tierney’s absence and will be delighted to have him back in the fold.
