Granit Xhaka trained with the Arsenal squad despite being suspended for their FA Cup clash at Southampton

Granit Xhaka looked to a put a week of controversy behind him as the Arsenal midfielder trained with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez on Friday afternoon.

The Switzerland international is unavailable for selection for Arsenal’s fourth-round clash against Southampton in the FA Cup on Saturday evening as he begins his four-game suspension.

Xhaka was sent off for a two-footed challenge on Belgium midfielder Steven Defour in Arsenal’s 2-1 win against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

Arsenal will be facing the Saints without the £33m summer signing as Southampton look to carry the momentum from reaching the EFL Cup final into the FA Cup clash at St Mary’s.

Germany international Mesut Ozil and Chile international Alexis Sanchez took a full part in training as Arsene Wenger put his players through their paces ahead of the cup clash.

Here is a round up of the best photos from Arsenal’s training session at London Colney.
