PHOTOS: Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey all smiles as Arsenal train ahead of Premier League clash v Sunderland

Walcott New Season

Below are the best pictures from Arsenal’s training session on Friday ahead of their Premier League clash against Sunderland away from home on Saturday.

Arsenal have been training today ahead of their Premier League clash against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

The Gunners were all smiles during the session, as the photos below demonstrate. Theo Walcott and fit-again Aaron Ramsey both trained, although the former will not be in the matchday squad this weekend as he is still not fully matchfit yet.

The North London club will head into Saturday’s contest on the back of a 2-1 victory over Anderlecht away from home in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Lukas Podolski’s late goal saw Arsenal pick up all three points from the Group D clash in Belgium to maintain their chances of progress to the last 16 of Europe’s premier club competition.

Arsenal have made a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign and need to pick up momentum.

Last weekend’s last-gasp 2-2 draw with Hull City at the Emirates Stadium saw Arsene Wenger’s side move down to seventh in the standings with just 11 points from eight matches, 11 points behind leaders Chelsea.
