Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has given the Gunners a major injury boost ahead of their clash with Liverpool by returning to training.

The Spaniard was substituted at half-time in Arsenals 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last Sunday with a muscular injury and Unai Emery feared hed miss the game against Jurgen Klopps side.

Arsenal are already sweating over the fitness of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac and can ill-afford to be without Bellerin, who has started every Premier League game under Emery.

However, Bellerin was able to participate in a full session with his team-mates on Friday and should be fit to start against the Reds.

Bellerin will have to pass a late fitness test and Sead Kolasinac, who also participated, will be expected to do the same.

Should the pair prove their fitness, Bellerin is likely to retain the right-back slot while Emery will decide between Kolasinac and Stephan Lichtsteiner.
