[Photos] Injury doubt trains as Arsenal prepare for Southampton

By on February 1, 2016

Arsene Wenger has been putting his squad through their paces at London Colney this afternoon as Arsenal prepare to entertain Southampton at the Emirates tomorrow night.

The boss confirmed at his press conference earlier that one or two players were facing late fitness checks with reports suggesting Laurent Koscielny was one of those who’d be assessed after he picked up a minor knock on Saturday.

However, it looks like the French international should be passed fit to play on Tuesday night after taking part in full training this afternoon.

Kos was joined by Danny Welbeck on the training pitch as the attacker continues to work on his fitness following over nine months out with a knee injury – although he’s not expected to be back in contention for another couple of weeks.

Alexis Sanchez and Francis Coquelin made their returns to the starting eleven during the FA Cup win over Burnley at the weekend and they haven’t suffered any reaction as they trained hard in North London this afternoon.
