Arsenal have been handed a triple injury boost with Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs all able to take part in training ahead of our FA Cup final with Chelsea.

There were fears Sanchez could miss the Wembley showpiece after limping out of our win over Everton on the final day of the Premier League season with a suspected hamstring injury.

Arsene Wenger said at his press conference earlier today that Sanchez was facing a late fitness test before his availability would be determined but it looks as though our Chilean superstar has made a swift recovery as he trained today with no sign of any strapping on his thigh.

There was also positive news on Oxlade-Chamberlain as he was out on the training pitches at London Colney this afternoon after recovering from a hamstring injury that’s kept him out of the last three games.

Gibbs is also back in contention after missing the Everton game with a minor thigh problem and with Nacho Monreal likely to be needed at centre-back, Gibbsy should start in the left wing-back position.

However, there was still no sign of Shkodran Mustafi in training today as the defender to continues to battle the effects of concussion following a kick to the head against Sunderland last week.

Here are some photos from today’s session courtesy of Arsenal’s Getty Account:
