Arsenal fans on Twitter have been calling for this star man to return from injury today, even though they managed to overcome Chelsea on Saturday evening without him. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is the man in question and having missed six Premier League games with a fractured metatarsal, the Gunners have been calling for him to return.

The versatile attacker turns 30-years-old today, and whilst he isn’t always given the rub of the green by the Gunners, a lot of them have been taking to Twitter to respond to their club’s birthday message for the Armenian international calling for him to make a swift return to injury. If he does return in the next few weeks, then the midfielder will provide some much-needed creativity.
At the moment it looks like Unai Emery is hell-bent on freezing Mesut Ozil out of the squad, so to have someone like Mkhitaryan in the side will be a huge boost. The 30-year-old has the ability to play as a winger on either side or in the #10 role under Unai Emery, and his four goals in the Premier League this season is a figure he’ll be keen to add to when he makes his return.
