PHOTO: Abou Diaby and Mesut Ozil return to Arsenal training

Boost for Arsene Wenger as key Arsenal stars back in training, including Laurent Koscielny.

As rare as a sight as the Loch Ness monster, Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has been pictured back in full training with the first team.

The midfielder has been out injured for more than 12 months, and is pictured above jogging behind Aaron Ramsey, while record signing Mesut Ozil is also seen in the centre.

Diaby's return has been rumoured for a few weeks now, but Arsene Wenger revealed last week that this was his first scheduled date to return, as he steps up his comeback from a cruciate knee injury.

Ozil has been out since early March with a hamstring problem, and could even be fit to return to the bench ahead of tomorrow's visit to West Ham.

Ramsey himself, Wenger revealed suffered a slight muscle injury against Wigan, but it was not enough to keep him out of training.

Key defender Laurent Koscielny was also back in training this morning along with Tomas Rosicky, and both are in contention to feature against the Hammers.
