Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Mkhitaryan & Mustafi back for full training.
Ahead of their Premier League clash on Saturday, Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been confirmed fit to return for full training, while Granit Xhaka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are also in contention to feature in the game.
Mustafi who has seen his side hamstrung by defensive injuries in recent times, with the German having joined Sokratis, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding on the sidelines will make a good news for Unai Emeri’s side as he returns.
Meanwhile Sokratis is expected by the end of February, while Holding and Bellerin continue to recover following knee surgeries. Danny Welbeck is also a long-term absentee.
In midfield, Xhaka is being assessed ahead of Saturday’s clash, but could feature after sitting out Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium due to a tight groin.
More so, Mkhitaryan will be selected having come through the Under-23 side’s match with West Ham on Monday unscathed after being out since mid-December with a foot problem.
“After a while, I came back. I started playing with the Under-23 and I’m very happy,”
“I hope that I won’t have any more injuries and I will keep playing.
“I’m thankful to everyone who has been working with me. To the medical staff, to the fitness coach and everyone, even to my team-mates. They were supporting me every day.
“It’s life, everything is happening and you can get injured or something like that. I hope that no one gets injured anymore and the team can be fully fit for the next games.”Mkhitaryan said.
