Arsenal trained on Friday ahead of their Premier League match at Aston Villa.

Arsenal have been training ahead of their Premier League clash against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday.

The Gunners will head into the encounter on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in Germany in the Champions League on Tuesday.

It was the North London club’s worst performance of the season so far as they suffered a comprehensive loss in their opening Group D game at the Signal Iduna Park.

However, Arsenal need to move on quickly and get over their European disappointment as they have to pick up three points at Villa in order to maintain their challenge for the Premier League title.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently seventh in the league table with six points from four matches, six points behind leaders Chelsea.

Arsenal have drawn their last three English top-flight fixtures – 2-2 with Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium, 1-1 with Leicester City away from home and 2-2 with Everton at Goodison Park.

The Arsenal players, though, have stepped up their efforts in training as they look to get their season back on track.

On Friday, Wenger conducted a training session, the best pictures of which are below.
