Arsenal have confirmed a triple injury boost ahead of Thursday night's Europa League game against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Kieran Tierney, Hector Bellerin, and Dino Mavropanos are all passed fit and ready to feature.

The Gunners confirmed the news via their official website.

 

None of the trio have featured yet this season due to injuries, and their returns come at a perfect time.

Arsenal's defence have been struggling badly this season, with new signing David Luiz failing to give the Gunners a lift.

Bellerin and Tierney could both start at full-back, and it would be a brave decision for Unai Emery to throw Mavropanos in too, to change the defence around almost entirely.

It is most likely the young Greek defender will start on the bench for the fixture, but it is good for Arsenal to have the option.

Arsenal have rotated their teams heavily in the Europa League over the past two seasons, and this is an ideal chance to bring in players needing to recover their match sharpness.

Frankfurt though are dangerous opponents, reaching the semi-finals of the Europa League last season.
