Photos: Arsenal players train, including Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Arsenal were put through their paces as they prepared for their latest Premier League encounter this weekend.

Arsenal take on Crystal Palace on Saturday with the Gunners looking to get back into the top four if possible.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League, one point behind Southampton and two behind Manchester United.

A match against the Eagles at Selhurst Park is not going to be easy, with former Arsenal forward Marouane Chamakh among those surely hoping to make a point following a disappointing spell in North London.

Ahead of the encounter, Arsenal were put through their paces with midfielder Jack Wilshere returning to training.

The England international has been unavailable for the first-team for their last 19 games and it remains to be seen if he will be deemed ready to take a place in Arsenal’s next match-day squad. But if he can ultimately get back to his best his return is a huge boost for Wenger and the club’s supporters.

Below you can find a selection of images from Arsenal’s latest training session, with Wilshere joined by Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain among others.
