PICTURE: Koscielny trains! Frenchman hands Wenger fitness boost

Laurent Koscielny was present for Arsenal training this morning ahead of the game at Bayern Munich tomorrow.

Arsenal trained this morning ahead of the mammoth clash against Bayern Munich in the Champions League tomorrow night.

The Gunners go into the game 2-0 down after the first leg and they will be without goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, suspended, and Jack Wilshere, who broke his foot against Denmark playing for England last week.

Arsenal will take confidence from the fact that they managed to become one of the only sides to win at Bayern Munich last season but Pep Guardiola’s comments about the Gunners this morning suggested he’s taking nothing for granted.

The good news for the Gunners is that Laurent Koscielny took part in the session after missing out at the weekend due to a hamstring problem he picked up while on duty with France last week.

The Frenchman should line up alongside Per Mertesacker in the heart of the defence, as they head into the very fixture where their relationship started to blossom last season.
