Arsenal‘s Theo Walcott has made his return to first-team training for the first time in 9 months after he suffered a knee injury in January.

The England international was stretchered off with an anterior cruciate ligament during Arsenal’s 2-0 win over arch rivals Tottenham in the third round of the FA Cup and as a result ended up missing the World Cup in Brazil during the summer

Arsenal were also boosted by the return of German youngster Serge Gnabry to full training as he makes his comeback from a knee injury of his own which he suffered in April as well as Nacho Monreal who was out with a back injury for a month.

Also striker Oliver Giroud is recovering from a broken foot ahead of schedule, as revealed by manager Arsene Wenger.
