Arsenal have been handed a boost with news that defensive duo Laurent Koscielny and Johan Djourou ar back in training.

French centre-half Koscielny has missed the past two Gunners matches with a back injury whilst his Swiss counterpart was also sidelined for the Tottenham and Olympiakos fixtures.

But the pair are away with their respective nations and although they will not play tonight, the fact they are training is a bonus for Arsene Wenger who has been using Alex Song in central defence during their absences.
