Arsenal have received a double injury boost ahead of their Premier League meeting against title rivals Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners host the Merseysiders in the league clash on Saturday evening and they could welcome back two key defenders for the all-important game.

It couldn’t have come at a better time for new Arsenal manager Unai Emery who’s struggling to field his best defensive lineup against the Reds.

Spanish international defender Hector Bellerin and Bosnian international star Sead Kolasinac trained with the team ahead of the Liverpool game.

Bellerin has been struggling with a thigh injury and his return to training would have delighted the Gunners faithfuls.

The right-back sustained the injury in the last league game against London rivals Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

He was replaced at the start of the second half by summer signing Stephan Lichtsteiner during the away Premier League clash with the Eagles.

Kolasinac could lineup against the Reds at left-back after he returned to training after recovering from a right hamstring problem.

He has barely played for the Gunners this season due to the knee injury he sustained during pre-season.

The former Schalke 04 player is the first candidate to replace first choice left-back Nacho Monreal who’s struggling with a hamstring injury ahead of the Liverpool game.
