Arsenal face a testing week after the international break has come to a close, with the Gunners tackling Stoke City in the Premier League before the first-leg of their Europa League quarter-final against CSKA Moscow.
The European competition now stands as the only route back into the Champions League for the north London side, who are poised to miss out on a top-four Premier League finish for the second season in a row.
Arsenal will hope to find form against Stoke, then carrying that into their tie against CSKA, and The Telegraph reports that Arsene Wenger’s side are hopeful of a triple injury boost ahead of the match against the Potters.
Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette are all in contention for this weekend’s clash, with the trio returning from their respective injury problems.
Wilshere withdrew from the England squad last week after sustaining a knock, whilst Ramsey and Lacazette were both absent from the international fold due to their issues- but could make their return this week.
They may not be risked fully with the Europa League clash on the horizon but could feature in some capacity.
