Arsenal were also boosted by the sight of Henrikh Mkhitaryan - who has been out with a knee ligament injury - doing light running even though he did not take part in the full session.

Mkhitaryan is believed to have an outside chance of being fit for the second leg next week but more likely the final if Arsenal make it to Lyon next month.

Arsene Wenger oversaw the session as he took the public training for the cameras for the first time since it was announced that he is leaving the club at the end of the season.
