Shkodran Mustafi takes to social media in the wake of Arsenal's final training session ahead of their clash with Burnley...

Shkodran Mustafi has taken to social media to welcome Per Mertesacker back to Arsenal training ahead of the Gunners’ Premier League clash with Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Mertesacker is yet to make a single appearance for Arsenal this season after suffering a serious knee injury over the summer and requiring surgery to fix the problem.

Mustafi will be expecting to line up for Arsenal when the north London side host Burnley at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon looking to close the gap to leaders Chelsea down to five points.

And the Germany international is clearly looking forward to the game after Arsenal completed their final training session on Saturday morning.

Mustafi shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “🔙🔛🔝 Always a good time with this guy! 😃 We’re ready for tomorrow’s game 👊🏼⚽#ARSBUR #COYG #sm20 @arsenal”

Arsenal head into the game eight points behind leaders Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.

The Gunners are aiming to go one better than their second-placed finish last season.
