Arsenal have been handed a double injury boost with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lucas Perez taking part in full training ahead of tomorrow night’s Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Oxlade-Chamberlain was spotted leaving Wembley on crutches following Sunday’s semi-final win over Man City after being withdrawn in extra-time.

Arsene Wenger confirmed at his press conference this morning that the midfielder would be assessed after taking a kick to his foot but he was confident there was no serious injury.

It looks like The Ox is in contention to face Leicester tomorrow night as he’s now been photographed taking part in full training at London Colney this afternoon.

The news will come as a huge boost as the 23-year-old has been in excellent form over the past few weeks and has picked up consecutive MOTM awards since being deployed as a right wing-back.

It also looks like Perez is close to making his comeback from a thigh injury as the striker has been spotted taking part in training with the rest of the first team squad today.

Wenger didn’t given any update on the Spaniard earlier today so I don’t think we’ll see him feature against the Foxes but hopefully it won’t be too much longer before he’s back in contention.
