Photos: Injury Doubt Trains With Arsenal Squad Ahead Of Chelsea Game

By on April 25, 2015

Per Mertesacker took part in training on Saturday ahead of Arsenal’s crucial clash with Chelsea at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The German international was considered a major doubt for the game after being forced off during last weekends FA Cup semi-final win over Reading with an ankle injury.

Arsene Wenger said at his press conference on Thursday that the centre-back would be given a late fitness test, but only gave his chances of playing as 50/50.

However, it looks as though Per has increased his chances of being in contention after taking part in training with the rest of the squad today.

If Mertesacker fails his late fitness test, then Gabriel is set to fill-in alongside Laurent Koscielny.

Here are some photos of Mertesacker in training on Saturday courtesy of Arsenal.com:
