Arsenal duo, Spain international Hector Bellerin and Germany international Shkodran Mustafi have both returned to training as the pair close in on their return to action.

Eagle-eyed Gunners supporters would have noticed the duo in training with pictures circulating online.

Spaniard had been expected to be sidelined for a while, but that is clearly not the case, with the Spanish star joining the rest of his team-mates for training.

Both stars missed the midweek defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup as Alli and Son struck to give their side a deserved win and set up a last-four match against Chelsea.

Hector was forced off during the break versus Southampton the previous weekend and many feared the worst.

The defender’s return will come as a massive boost to Unai Emery, with the north London giants boss keen to avoid a build-up of injuries at the back.

Shkodran has been struggling with a hamstring injury since the win over Huddersfield nearly two weeks ago.

This season, in all competitions, the 23-year-old full-back has made 17 appearances and provided 4 assists and what about former Valencia player, Mustafi has made 18 matches and scored 2 goals.
