Arsenal defender David Luiz has returned to training with the first team ahead of their Europa League semi final clash against Villarreal.
The north Londoners take on the Spanish side, and old manager Unai Emery, as they seek to clinch the competition and book a place in next season’s Champions League.
The first leg is on Thursday in Spain, and manager Mikel Arteta will be delighted if he can call on Luiz for the game.
The Brazilian has not played since March 21, when he had surgery on a knee injury.
Arteta will assess Luiz in training before deciding whether he can start the game or is only fit for a place on the bench.
