Many Arsenal fans have been left to buzz after Chris Wheatley dropped a big update before their UEFA Europa League second leg tie at home to Villarreal.
As per a tweet from the football.london journalist, Kieran Tierney, Alex Lacazette and David Luiz were all in full training ahead of the game, with the former two not being able to play against Newcastle United because of injury while the latter was forced off at St. James’ Park.
Should Arsenal start Tierney?
They are three key players that Mikel Arteta may need to call upon at the Emirates Stadium, with Tierney offering a more natural threat at left-back than Granit Xhaka, who is a central midfield player by trade, while David Luiz has the ability to pick out his teammates with long balls from the back, as he showed against the Magpies.
Lacazette would offer another goal threat up front, and is the Gunners’ top scorer in all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt).

“I’m so happy David Luiz is training. Such a strong fellow. #UEL”
“Big positive before the semis.”
