Arsenal have mixed news on the injury front ahead of the weekend clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been speaking to reporters ahead of the Gunners’ match against West Bromwich Albion this weekend, with his comments later published by the club’s official Twitter account.

Arsenal are currently second in the Premier League, behind leaders Manchester City only on goal-difference, and they will know every point counts with the chasing pack hot on their heels.

One huge boost for Arsenal is the return of Hector Bellerin, with Wenger confirming the Spanish full-back is fit and available for Saturday’s clash.

The 20-year-old has been brilliant for Arsenal this season but he was ruled out of recent matches against Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur, leaving Mathieu Debuchy to struggle as his replacement.

However, Arsenal can now call on Bellerin for the match against the Baggies and the young Spaniard will be looking to build on his 13 appearances to date when they head to The Hawthorns this weekend.

There was however less positive news when it came to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey, who are both still ruled out.
