Francis Coquelin is back in training for Arsenal.

Francis Coquelin is back in training for Arsenal, after missing two matches with a knee injury.

The Frenchman suffered a knock in the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and missed subsequent games away to Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City.

Fortunately for the Gunners, they won both matches, and are back in form, but his return is a most welcome one.

Arsenal have a Champions League game tonight at home to Olympiakos, which looks straightforward, except it has become a must win given their surprise defeat to Dinamo Zagreb a fortnight ago.

Coquelin was pictured back at London Colney in full training on Monday, easing fears that his injury could develop into a more serious one like Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck's recent lay offs.

The decision Arsene Wenger must make is whether to throw Coquelin straight back into action against Olympiakos, or leave him on the bench, with a key match against Manchester United on the horizon.
