Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that midfielder Mikel Arteta could return to the fold this weekend against Stoke City.
The Spaniard has not played a game yet during the 2013-14 campaign due to a thigh injury that he suffered in pre-season, but Wenger has claimed today that Arteta could be named in the squad for Sunday's clash.
"He comes back into full training today," Wenger said in a press conference. "I have to make the decision about him tomorrow morning."
The North London outfit currently sit in second place in the Premier League table, one point behind Liverpool.
