Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger received some welcome news on Tuesday when five players feared to have contracted injuries at the weekend reported for training.

Bacary Sagna, Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky all hurt themselves during Arsenal's shock 3-1 loss at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season on Saturday, but were able to train on Tuesday morning.

Arsenal will hope to have all five players at their disposal when they visit Turkish side Fenerbahce for the first leg of their Champions League play-off tie on Wednesday.

However, Wenger will definitely be without England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who could be out for up to six months after suffering a serious knee injury against Villa.
