Photos: Walcott and Sanchez all smiles in Arsenal training session
Arsenal train at London Colney ahead of their clash with Burnley at Emirates Stadium
Theo Walcott looked in good spirits ahead of his potential return to first-team action when Arsenal host Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The England international was put through his paces along with the rest of Arsene Wenger’s squad at the Gunners’ London Colney training base on Friday morning.
Wenger earlier had said at his weekly news conference that Walcott would be unlikely to start the game due to his lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.
The winger has not played a competitive game for the Gunners since suffering the problem during January’s FA Cup win over Tottenham, and Wenger said: “Theo Walcott is not completely ready. He’s been out for too long to start.”
Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey were among the other players in action on Friday ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash.
Here are some of the best pictures from Friday’s training session.
