Arsenal have three major injury boosts before they take on Burnley in Gameweek 18

Arsenal will take on Burnley at home this Saturday and Unai Emery has a number of first-team players who are just returning from injury.

While the likes of Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding out for the rest of the season with long-term injuries, a number of the Arsenal defenders have picked up injuries during the past couple of weeks.

Hector Bellerin picked up a calf strain after which the manager had informed that the player could be in line to miss a number of matches.

But now it seems that the right-back is back in training and could be fit to face Burnley during the wemidweek

While no official confirmation has come from the club but we believe Hector Bellerin will go through a late fitness test before Saturday’s match.

Shkodran Mustafi limped off with a hamstring injury during the win against Huddersfield a fortnight ago but like Bellerin he took is back in training and should be available for selection for Gameweek 1.

Sead Kolasinac picked up a thigh injury during Arsenal’s 3-2 defeat vs Southampton last weekend and he did not feature during the North London Derby in midweek.

But reports have suggested that his injury is not too serious and the left-back could return to action against Burnley on Saturday.

If Arsenal manage to beat Burnley this weekend then they will have a chance to be tied on points with Chelsea who are on the fourth spot given the Blues fail to pick up three points vs Leicester City.
