Growing stronger: Coquelin has established a smooth partnership with Elneny

Arsenal duo Francis Coquelin and Lucas Perez have returned to full training, according to a report.

The Mirror state that both have taken part in sessions at the Gunners’ London Conley headquarters and are now in line to face Swansea on Saturday.

Defensive midfielder Coquelin suffered a knee injury in his side’s 3-0 win over Chelsea last month, but scans showed the problem was not as bad as first feared.

Striker Perez picked up a similar injury in training prior to the international break and as a result sat out the Gunners last-gasp 1-0 win against Burnley.

Frenchman Coquelin had started five out six Premier League games for Arsene Wenger’s side before his injury and was given the nod over Granit Xhaka to partner Santi Cazorla in central midfield.

Summer signing Perez has featured on only two occasions for the north London club, starting the 2-1 win over Southampton earlier on in September.

Arsenal have won five consecutive games in all competitions andthey will be searching for their sixth when Bob Bradley’s Swansea visit the Emirates at the weekend.

The Gunners are third in the league table with 16 points form seven games, one point behind rivals Tottenham and two points a drift of leaders Manchester City.

In other Arsenal team news, the club’s star has posted a Twitter message ahead of his side’s qualification clash.
