Alex Iwobi Returns To Full Training With Arsenal Ahead of Newcastle Showdown

Alex Iwobi has returned to full training with Arsenal after recovering from the illness that ruled him out of the Cardiff game.

The attacker started against both ​Chelsea and West Ham before being forced out of consideration in the ​win over Cardiff due to illness, an issue which also saw him have to opt out of international duty with Nigeria.

Iwobi was pictured training with his team mates on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old being available for selection will come as a boost to Arsenal boss Unai Emery who will still be without the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Sead Kolasinac, Carl Jenkinson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles – all of whom have suffered long term injuries.

Arsenal will be seeking to extend their winning run to three games on Saturday when they face Newcastle away, and Unai Emery’s squad certainly appeared in buoyant mood in training.
