Arsenal have been handed a huge fitness boost ahead of Sunday’s clash with West Ham United with Willian having returned to training.
The Hammers welcome the Gunners to the London Stadium tomorrow in what is a massive game for both sides.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over West Ham for the second time in December 2019.
The Scot has transformed the Hammers from relegation fodder into contenders for the Champion League spaces in just six months.
It really has been a remarkable turnaround.
Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta has done a fine job at the Emirates as well.
Arsenal have been inconsistent this season. There are real signs that the Gunners are making genuine progress under the Spaniard, however.
The North London club head into tomorrow’s clash with some big injury concerns.
Bukayo Saka and Willian were both big doubts for the game against West Ham.
Arsenal handed injury boost ahead of West Ham clash
It appears as though the latter is in contention to play tomorrow, however.
Willian was pictured during Arsenal training yesterday:
Whether he is actually ready to start the game against West Ham remains to be seen.
Having the Brazilian back in action during training is a big boost for the Gunners, however. Especially with Bukayo Saka a major doubt for the clash with the Hammers.
Willian, 32, struggled to impress for Arsenal earlier on this season. He has shown signs that he is back to somewhere near his best recently, however.
West Ham will fancy their chances of beating Arsenal – a result that would put us level on points with fourth placed Chelsea.
The Gunners will be desperate for all three points as well, however, in order to keep their hopes of a top four finish alive.
It should be an absolute cracker at the London Stadium.
