By Amir Mir
Arsenal have received a major injury boost on key trio Mesut Ozil, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Gibbs, according to a report.
The Evening Standard claim that the first team trio are set to return to action as the Gunners visit the Liberty Stadium to take on Swansea on Saturday afternoon.
It is said that playmaker Ozil, who missed his side’s last three games because of illness, has improved and re-joined the first team setup.
Furthermore, right-back Bellerin is expected to be available after missing the 2-1 win at Preston in the FA Cup on Saturday evening after receiving a kick during training.
Meanwhile, left-back Gibbs, who not featured for the north London club since Boxing Day, has recovered well from his knee injury and could now push Nacho Monreal for a starting berth.
