Arsenal receive double fitness boost ahead of Liverpool clash

Arsenal have been handed a timely injury boost ahead of their clash against Liverpool on Saturday, with news that Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka are back in full training. 

The two have not featured for the team in the Premier League's opening two matches but will be in line for action in the top-of-the-table clash. 

Speaking ahead of the tie, manager Unai Emery, however, indicated the pair will be observed by Saturday morning on whether or not they'll make it for the clash. 

 

 

"Tomorrow is the last training and we are going to decide tomorrow. Today they trained, but really, I need tomorrow to have the last training, to be really sure how we can be better there," he said. 

"I know some players need to be fit and to improve 100 percent to be in their best fitness. But tomorrow is the day. Really I am positive with some players for Saturday but I don't want to decide today or to say to you today how we are because tomorrow can change," he added. 

Arsenal head into the match with a perfect record to the start of the new campaign, having won their opening two matches. 

They first beat Newcastle 1-0 away, before a 2-1 triumph over Burnley at the Emirates last weekend. 

They are currently second behind the Reds, who have a superior goal difference.
