Arsenal boosted by SIX returns

Arsenal have been boosted by the return of six players ahead of their clash with West Ham this weekend.

According to the Daily Express, the Gunners have a number of defenders available after injury, including Laurent Koscielny, Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal and Konstantinos Mavropanos. 

Playmaker Mesut Ozil is also fit, after missing games against Liverpool and Fulham in the Premier League and Blackpool in the FA Cup.

The Germany international has missed a number of big games this season, including matches against Tottenham and Manchester United, while he was left out of the squad for the reverse fixture against the Hammers at the Emirates.

The news will come as a major boost to Unai Emery, who has seen his side fail to win any of their last four games on the road.

Indeed, they were thumped 5-1 by Liverpool at the end of December, but have got back to winning ways in 2019, thrashing the Cottagers 4-1 and Blackpool 3-0.
