Arsenal have received a double injury boost ahead of their Premier League meeting with newly promoted side Aston Villa on Sunday evening.

Gunners faithfuls have been boosted with the return to action of fullbacks Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin.

The two players were in action for the Arsenal u23 team during their game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday night.

Tierney and Bellerin played over an hour each for Arsenal as they played out a 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Scottish international Kieran Tierney played his first game in an Arsenal shirt since his move in the summer.

The 22-year-old joined Arsenal from Scottish champions Celtic during this summer’s transfer window for a fee believed to be around £25m.

Kieran Tierney has been injured for the past few months after he underwent hip surgery while he was a Celtic player.

The Scottish left-back came through the ranks at Celtic before he made his first team debut.

He was part of the Celtic squad that won an unprecedented treble in each of the last three seasons.

On his part, Hector Bellerin has not played for Arsenal since he sustained a serious knee injury during the London Derby clash with Chelsea in the Premier League in January.
