Arsenal handed fitness boost ahead of Everton

Premier League table-toppers Arsenal have, on Thursday, been afforded a boost on the personnel front.

The Gunners, of course, are currently in the process of preparing for a return to action.

After being sent packing from the FA Cup at the hands of Manchester City last weekend, Mikel Arteta’s troops will kick their pursuit of what would prove to be a shock league title back into gear, in a meeting with relegation-threatened Everton at Goodison Park.

Arsenal will head into the clash sweating over the wellbeing of a key member of Arteta’s first-choice XI, after midfield standout Thomas Partey was forced into a premature departure from proceedings at the Etihad last time out.

As alluded to above, though, whilst concerns remain over one member of the north Londoners’ setup, another has afforded his manager a timely boost with a view to the 2nd half of the campaign.

The player in question? Reiss Nelson.

On Thursday, though, he was spotted back amongst Arteta’s ranks at London Colney, ramping up preparations for an imminent return to the matchday fold.
