Arsenal boost as Aaron Ramsey returns to training after a month out

Arsene Wenger will soon be able to call upon the Welshman once again, as injuries threaten to derail Arsenal's title bid

Arsene Wenger has received a much-needed boost ahead of Arsenal's Champions League tie with Dinamo Zagreb with the news that Aaron Ramsey is back in training after a month out, the Daily Mail report.

The Welshman has not featured for the Gunners since the side's victory over Bayern Munich, after limping out of the game against the Bundesliga champions early on in the second-half due to a hamstring injury (via Sky Sports).

Wenger has confirmed that the must-win game against the Croatian side will come too soon for Ramsey, as well as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (via the Mail).

"I can rotate a bit within the squad but Ramsey and Chamberlain will be short and they are the two closest," he suggested.

The news of the Ramsey's return has come at a time when some Arsenal fans would be forgiven for thinking that their season was beginning to unravel. 

A disappointing defeat to West Brom at the weekend will be followed by elimination from the Champions League at the group-stage for the first time since 2003, should they fail to beat Zagreb tomorrow. 

Furthermore, Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta joined the Gunners' alarming injury list after they were both taken off during the game at the Hawthorns. The Mail suggest that Coquelin could be out until the new year after sustaining a knee injury against Tony Pulis' side.
