Arsenal are nearly back to full fitness as Alexandre Lacazette is back in full training. The striker hasn’t played since the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur and, with his side struggling to create chances, should provide a huge impact for his side.

Arsenal Injury Update: Alexandre Lacazette Is Back

Could He Start Against Sheffield United?

Head coach Unai Emery spoke to the media ahead of Monday’s Premier League clash with Sheffield United:

“Today is Lacazette’s first training back with us. He finished it well and he’s feeling well with his injuries. Tomorrow we will be training again and he will be with us. We will decide.

“The most important thing is that first he is training, then secondly it’s whether he can be with us and it depends how he can feel in the next days training with us, whether his ankle is not giving him any more problems.

“It’s positive for us that he’s started training and that he’s a possibility for Monday. I don’t know whether he’s ready for 90 minutes or on the bench. We’ll decide that over the next days, but it’s very important for him to come back to training with us.”

Kieran Tierney & Reiss Nelson

Along with Alexandre Lacazette, the Scotland international is set to play a role on Monday. He has yet to play in the league with Arsenal, but impressed in the Carabao Cup and Europa League:

“[Tierney is] ready to play. Now we have two options in that left-back role with Sead Kolasinac and him. We’re going to play a lot of matches after Monday. We will need every player.”

As Sead Kolasinac featured for Bosnia over the international break, logic dictates that Tierney will start against Sheffield.

Meanwhile, Reiss Nelson picked up a left knee injury against Standard Liege. He is not available to play at the moment and the club’s website confirms he is out until November.
