"They [club doctors] told me today he is a bit better". Now in training he starts to score goals.

Meanwhile The Gunners, who defeated Eddie Howe's men 3-1 back in November at the Emirates Stadium, are looking to build upon back-to-back Premier League victories over West Brom and Crystal Palace respectively.
