DOUBLE ADVANTAGE Arsenal Ahead Of FA Cup Clash,

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.

Arsenal would most likely welcome back long term injured player, Francis Coquelin to the first team after a long injury lay off, according to reports.

According to the Daily Mail, Francis Coquelin is set to feature in either FA Cup clash against Burnley or the Under-21 against Stoke, both on Saturday. Likewise, Welbeck is also on the verge of playing return after recovering from a knee injury that has kept him out for nearly a year.

Reports further indicates that the Gunners will take a cautious approach to the forward’s return given the length of time he has been out, with the club considering organising a behind closed doors clash specifically for Welbeck.

Welbeck joined Arsenal from rivals Manchester United for a fee in the region of £16 Million and won the FA Cup with the Gunners in his first season with the club, helping Arsenal to eliminate his former team Manchester United by scoring the winning goal against United at Old Trafford in a 1-2 win for the Gunners.

Both Francis Coquelin and Danny Welbeck’s return to the Gunners first team would be a huge boost in their quest to lifting the Premier League title for the first time since 2004, as they remain in the mix for the title; although Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspurs and Manchester City are all in contentions too with Leicester City currently leading the standings with 3 points clear.
