Arsene Wenger’s men were put through their paces at the club’s London Colney training ground as they completed their final preparations ahead of their clash with the Baggies at The Emirates.

It is Xhaka’s first taste of the festive period in the Premier League after the Swiss midfielder arrived at Arsenal from Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer transfer window – and he looked happy to be taking part in training on Christmas Day.

Arsenal head into the game looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League in the wake of their successive defeats at the hands of both Manchester City and Everton.

The Gunners are currently fourth in the table and nine points behind leaders Chelsea.

Here are some of the best pictures from Arsenal’s training session on Christmas Day at London Colney.
