Fabregas back in Gunners training

The Spain international, who has not played since Arsenal’s 1-1

draw at Sunderland last month, trained alongside his team-mates at

the Gunners’ base in London Colney on Monday. The north Londoners

have suffered a dip in form since the 23-year-old midfielder’s

injury, losing to West Brom and Chelsea before stuttering to a 2-1

win over Birmingham at the weekend. Fabregas played a key part in

Arsenal’s Champions League opener against Braga, scoring twice in a

6-0 thrashing of the Portuguese team in September. Arsene Wenger’s

side will look to make it three wins from three in Champions League

Group H when they take on Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk at the

Emirates Stadium.
