For the first time in the whole season, Arsene Wenger was able to welcome every single member of the first-team squad to training – a huge boost as the north London side look to solidify their place in the top four.

Although it is now too little too late, seeing every available player available in the first-team to utilise will be somewhat of a boost to supporters.

All of Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain trained, as well as captain Mikel Arteta.

The many options leaves the boss with a selection dilemma, with the likes of Alex Iwobi and Mohamed Elneny almost solidifying their places in the starting XI, although they now have much more welcomed competition.
Twitter: Will Rosicky make it into the squad this weekend? So. Many. Options. #afc https://t.co/EhegxBVvbZ (@ReadArsenalFC)
Matt Macey trained with the first-team as usual, although it’s unlikely that the youngster will be involved in the squad for the visit of Norwich this weekend.

Should Arsenal fail to gain all three points against the Canaries on Saturday, they could see themselves just a point ahead of Manchester United.

A selection that will be interesting for the boss to make is whether Per Mertesacker will regain his place in the side ahead of Gabriel, who the Frenchman is looking to push into becoming a first-team regular.
