Photos: Welbeck joins Xhaka in Arsenal training ahead of FA Cup clash

Arsenal complete their final training session ahead of their FA Cup clash with Preston North End on Saturday

Danny Welbeck looked to be in good shape as he took part in Arsenal training ahead of the Gunners’ FA Cup trip to Preston North End on Saturday.

The Gunners were put through their paces at the club’s London Colney training ground on Friday morning as they completed their final preparations for the third-round tie.

Arsene Wenger hinted this week that he could be set to hand Welbeck his first appearance of the season at Deepdale following his long lay-off with a knee injury.

Arsenal head into the game looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 3-3 draw with Bournemouth in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

Also pictured in action during Friday morning’s Arsenal training session were summer signings Granit Xhaka and Shkodran Mustafi.

Arsenal will be hoping to win the FA Cup this season after lifting the trophy in 2014 and 2015 before ending the campaign without silverware last term.

Here are some of the best pictures from Arsenal’s latest training session.
